Film Productions

The City of Chamblee has adopted a film production ordinance to help facilitate commercial movie and television projects that shoot in Chamblee. Georgia has succeeded in marketing the state as a location for film productions, recognizing the economic impact this industry provides, as well as the tourism it generates for local jurisdictions. But film productions take place at the local level, where cities and counties must decide how to regulate commercial activities.

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. Scouts looking for the perfect location for your production can view the DeKalb County Locations map or reach out to our office for locations in Chamblee.

Chamblee residents or business owners who would like to have their property included in DeKalb County’s film-friendly registry can use the Film Locations Registry to submit an application. Please be aware, all productions, regardless of location of filming, must go through the film permitting process. 

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 is notified of any impacts, and that the production company can maintain their schedule. The permit process will be administered by the Economic Development Office. Contact Laura Linman at 770-986-5010 or llinman@chambleega.gov for more information.
