Georgia, located in the Caucasus region, where Europe meets Asia, has a lot to offer filmmakers: diverse climate and landscapes, fusion of different architectural styles, lower costs across the board, a business-friendly environment and competitive financial incentive. Georgia is a relatively small but is a very diverse country in terms of architectural styles, climate and landscapes. Within Just one day you can shoot snowcapped mountains and sunny beaches, while captivating the fusion of medieval and modern architecture. With Asian, European and Soviet styles it makes it possible to double as Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe among many other countries.
Georgia is a very cost-effective destination. Direct production expenses such as hiring crews and equipment are much lower than in many other Eastern European countries, with the additional incentives of low cost goods and living. All this will save you big numbers in budget. Georgia offers foreign producers a business-friendly and safe environment with fast, transparent business processes, flexible labor market, low and flat taxes. Georgia has a modern infrastructure with well-developed roads and rail system, several local airports connecting different parts of the country and 3 international airports with both direct and indirect flights from major European cities.
