Giles County Film Office

Giles County offers beautiful settings with stunning natural landmarks for year round shots for commercials, television programs, videos and movies. The Giles County Film Office makes the business of film making easier. We work with scouts and production companies from  the moment that they begin looking for locations until they have finished their shoot.



In addition, the office confers with:

The state on incentives for filmmakers, sales and tax exemptions for production activity, permits and regulations required for Virginia.


Individuals on the community level by connection production companies with the local services (Businesses, interns, food, accommodations, etc.) that they require for their film project.
