Located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Georgia is a land of captivating contrasts and breathtaking landscapes. From the rugged peaks of the Caucasus Mountains to the lush valleys of the wine-growing region of Kakheti, Georgia boasts a diverse geography that offers filmmakers a rich tapestry of settings.


Filming in Georgia

Georgia, nestled between Europe and Asia along the eastern coast of the Black Sea, boasts a breathtaking landscape defined by the dramatic Caucasus mountains to the north. Despite its compact size, the country’s diverse climate zones range from snowy peaks to subtropical forests, deep canyons, seaside resorts, and desert-like vistas, all within a mere two to three hours’ flying time from Central Europe.

Within an hour’s drive of major cities like capital Tbilisi and Black Sea pearl Batumi, Georgia offers a tapestry of filming locations, from ancient castles and fortifications to Soviet-era architecture and modern European streets. With a history of film production spanning over a century, Georgia continues its cinematic legacy with a pool of skilled, multilingual crew, diverse cast options, and a robust selection
of production equipment.

Welcoming foreign production companies, Georgia allows filming in numerous public spaces, with the capital city, Tbilisi, offering straightforward permits for simple projects like b-roll filming. For larger endeavours requiring street closures, a 3-day permit is readily available, with assistance from local production in navigating the permit process and coordinating with authorities for traffic control.

Even within sacred sites such as cathedrals and monasteries, filming is possible with proper permits, though advanced application is recommended due to longer processing times. Georgia’s warm embrace of filmmakers, coupled with its diverse and accessible filming opportunities, makes it an enticing destination for bringing cinematic visions to life.


Georgia experiences a diverse climate due to its varied topography. In the western regions, a humid subtropical climate prevails, characterized by mild winters and hot, humid summers. Eastern Georgia, on the other hand, exhibits a more continental climate, with colder winters and hotter summers. The mountainous areas, including the Caucasus range, often experience heavy snowfall in winter, making
them ideal for winter sports enthusiasts.

Overall, Georgia enjoys a relatively mild climate, with distinct seasons offering something for everyone, whether it’s hiking in spring, beach-going in summer, or skiing in winter.
