The City of Chamblee has adopted a film production ordinance to help facilitate commercial movie and television projects that shoot in Chamblee.

The City of Chamblee has adopted a film production ordinance to help facilitate commercial movie and television projects that shoot in Chamblee. Georgia has become a hub for the entertainment industry, with an estimated statewide economic impact of $6 billion from nearly 250 movies and television shows filmed during fiscal July 2014 to June 2015. Chamblee offers a great mix of authentic and unique locations for filming: from quiet neighborhoods to busy city streets. Chamblee’s location in the metro area, proximity to Peachtree-DeKalb Airport, and vicinity to existing or planned film production facilities make it a great choice for any project.

With more film projects coming to the area, a permitting process becomes necessary to address certain inconveniences to the public that may result. Chamblee’s straightforward process will ensure that proper standards are met, the public will be notified of any impacts, and that the production company can maintain their schedule. The permit process will be administered by the Economic Development Office. For more information check out www.chambleega.gov/film or contact Adam Causey at 770-986-5010 or acausey@chambleega.gov.
