Additional Information from the Film Commission
The Montana Film Office was created in 1974 as a central information source for on-location filmmakers. It is a component of the Montana Promotion Division of theMontana Department of Commerce. The primary role of the Montana Film Office is to bring productions (feature films, commercials, documentaries, television programs, and still shoots) into Montana for the overall economic benefit of the state. We work with producers to find locations that fit their script, as well as act as their liaison through every phase of production.
