Governor Deal observes Film Day at the State Capitol

ATLANTA — Governor Nathan Deal recognized the film industry's economic impact on the state of Georgia by observing Film Day on Wednesday, March 15 at the State Capitol. Georgia-based productions generated more than $7 billion in economic impact during the 2016 fiscal year alone.

Deal described Georgia's booming film industry as a "significant piece of the reason why Georgia has been named the number one state in the nation in which to do business for four consecutive years."

House Speaker David Ralston echoed Deal's words of support.

“I am excited by the success of this industry,” Ralston said. “As long as I sit in that office, there will be no bigger fan of that tax credit and this industry than I am.”

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.
