Filming in North Alabama

It’s all about location and North Alabama is camera-ready!

A division of the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (AMLA), the North Alabama Film Commission is here to attract and support filming in the sixteen counties of North Alabama by serving as an information center for incentives, locations, industry directory, film guidelines, support and crew services and more. The sixteen counties of North Alabama consist of Blount, Cherokee, Colbert, Cullman, DeKalb, Etowah, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marion, Marshall,  Morgan, and Winston Counties.

Alabama is one of the most geographically diverse states in the nation. It offers filmmakers everything from urban metropolitan cities to small towns and rural areas and mountain and river valleys to beautiful Gulf Coast beaches. Create your masterpiece using our backdrop!

The North Alabama Film Commission has several functions, including:
- Marketing North Alabama as a premier film destination for motion picture, television, and commercial productions
- Supporting the Alabama Film Rebate Incentives Program
- Serving as the central point of contact for film production in North Alabama
- Functioning as a liaison between film companies and various municipalities in North Alabama
- Providing location assistance and coordination with local crew and businesses
- Developing regional film resources including a locations library, crew and supply company database, and filming activity reporting and tracking.

The North Alabama Film Commission is working with tourism organizations, chambers of commerce, and industrial development authorities in our sixteen counties to gather information on locations to input into a database that will serve as a resource directory. We also are working with counties and municipalities to develop incentives and permitting needs.

Production budgets benefit from lower expense costs in Alabama and state tax incentives. The state also boasts a growing and ready talent pool of experienced crew members and support services.
