Stonecrest Film and Entertainment Commission


Stonecrest is a camera-ready, film-friendly community that welcomes your production. Several projects have filmed here including: Shaft, Greenleaf, Black Lightning, MacGyver, The Passage, The Resident, The Outsiders, Star, and Respect. Our popular destinations include Arabia Mountain National Park, Flat Rock Archives and the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve. 

The State of Georgia's film and entertainment tax credits provide a significant cost savings for companies producing feature films, television series, commercials, etc. and have elevated the state to the 3rd leading production center in the country. Stonecrest has partnered with the DeKalb Entertainment Commission, Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office, and Location Manager's Guild International to market the city as a leading center for film, culture, and entertainment.
