Gwinnett County is making waves in Georgia’s booming film and television industry. At the recent Signature Georgia Entertainment 100 event, held at Eagle Rock Studios in Norcross, Georgia Entertainment President Jezlan Moyet lauded Gwinnett as one of the most “camera-ready” communities in the nation. The county’s collaboration between city officials, economic development teams, and business leaders has fostered an environment ripe for film production.

Explore Gwinnett, the local film office, has been bustling with activity, handling up to 375 location permits annually. Major productions like Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and Netflix’s “Ozark” have taken advantage of Gwinnett’s diverse filming locations, including OFS and Eagle Rock Studios. This thriving industry has not only brought Hollywood glamour to Gwinnett but also spurred significant economic growth and job creation across the county.
