Atlanta has become a filmmaker’s paradise in recent years due to generous state tax incentives for film and television productions. Georgia is ranked as the third-highest film production destination in the country, according to a recent FilmL.A. study. Between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015, 248 films and television shows were produced in the state of Georgia, earning the state the title of “Hollywood of the South.” Major film productions shot in Atlanta include Marvel’s Ant-Man, The Divergent Series, Anchorman 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mockingjay, Part 1 and 2 and Furious 7.
