Georgia had a record-breaking year in the film and television industry. Governor Brian Kemp announced today that Georgia Made film and television productions generated $4.4 billion in revenue during the fiscal year 2022.

The Georgia Film Office reported that Georgia hosted a total of 412 productions a combination of feature films, independent films, television series, commercials, and music videos between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. Georgia claimed four of the top six spots for highest domestic-grossing movies: “Avengers: Endgame” (No.2), “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (No.3), “Black Panther” (No. 5), and “Avengers: Infinity War” (No. 6).
