Film and tourism

Film induced tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of the tourism industry. This form of cultural tourism has the potential to provide short and long-term tourism revenue to our community. Some short term examples are fans and the curious who come to observe filming activity and social media posts by cast during shoots. More long-term will be familiarity that comes with re-broadcasts.


The most recent effort offers international exposure gained by Hallmark Channel’s broadcast coverage in 100 countries. “Christmas in Homestead” is one of three films for world premiere during the week of Thanksgiving and has an initial shelf life of five years. Learn more HERE!

I had such a great experience filming in Dahlonega. The city and county representatives are extremely helpful and eager to support film productions in any way possible. It’s pretty remarkable to come to a small, quaint mountain town like this to find such a professional, production ready atmosphere. Not only are you dealing with great people, but you’re also in one of the prettiest areas in Georgia!  I hope to be back soon!

Downtown Dahlonega is a sparkling example of how careful planning, small business support and historic preservation can combine to create a thriving downtown. Its downtown district, art galleries, restored theater and courthouse stand out in North Georgia, making Dahlonega a viable place to do business.
