Savannah Takes Top Spot on Filmmaker List

If you’re in Savannah to make it big in the production industry you’re in the right city, according to MovieMaker magazine, which recently named the Hostess City the No. 1 best place to live and work as a moviemaker.

This was the sixth year in a row that Savannah has been named in the top three, landing the number one spot in 2020, 2019, 2017 and 2016. MovieMaker determines the winners using surveys, editorial research on tax incentives and recent productions, and personal visits to most of the locations on the list.

“It is such an honor for Savannah to be named by MovieMaker magazine as the number one Best Place to Live and Work as a Moviemaker in the small cities and towns category,” said Savannah Regional Film Commission Executive Director Beth Nelson.

“Each year the Savannah region continues to invest in the industry to make it not only the ideal location to work, but also to live, and it is wonderful to be recognized.”
