MovieMaker Magazine released their 2024 list of best cities to live and work as a moviemaker, and own Richmond, Virginia made the list.
MovieMaker noted Richmond’s myriad of contemporary and historical locations, film-friendly environment, customizable incentives, and celebrated film festivals like the Virginia Film Festival within an hour’s drive.
“[Virginia] goes above and beyond to help productions with whatever they need, bringing a red-tape eliminating, make-it-happen attitude.”
The article also cites Richmond’s food and culture scene, quality of life, and proximity to Washington, D.C.
“Richmond also boasts many museums, a bustling restaurant and bar scene, and all kinds of recreational activities, like kayaking on the James River, which runs through downtown. It’s less than a two-hour drive to Washington D.C., but there’s not much you’ll need that Richmond doesn’t already have.”
