Camera Lens

Welcome to the City of Stonecrest Film and Entertainment Department. Stonecrest is a camera-ready, film-friendly community that welcomes your production. Several projects have filmed here to include 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 to name a few. 

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 GA to the 3rd leading production center in the Country.

The City of Stonecrest Film and Entertainment Department welcomes all productions and serves as a resource for the industry and our community.  We have a streamlined film permitting process for motion picture productions, bring awareness to production-related educational and training opportunities, and safeguard the interests of our residents and businesses impacted by production.

The City of Stonecrest Film and Entertainment has partnered with the DeKalb Entertainment Commission, Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office, and Location Manager's Guild International to market Stonecrest as a leading center for film, culture, and entertainment.
