West Virginia Film Partners

Film in West Virginia is a community industry. You’ll find our partners from the highest mountains to the deepest valleys; in quaint, storybook towns, within refurbished railway stations, across fields of wildflowers, and in eclectic, historic urban areas.  Our county representatives include tourism, economic development and government offices, all with the expertise to help find your perfect location and navigate permit requirements.

Here are some partners and resources that have a proven track record for supporting West Virginia’s film industry:
