Additional Information from the Film Commission
On behalf of the Rhode Island Film & TV Office, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and our elected officials, I invite you to film your production in our beautiful Ocean State.
From our diverse locations to our outstanding restaurants and cultural attractions, I'm certain you'll find Rhode Island to be a fun, film-friendly neighborhood. Our state is merely forty-eight miles long and approximately forty miles wide, so please try to see as much of it as you can while you're here. Each area is diverse, rich with history and visually unique. One twenty-minute road trip can take you from a vibrant cityscape to a scenic ocean drive and, if you keep going, you may find yourself at one of our magnificent mansions. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.
Please do not hesitate to call our office if you have any questions or needs. We stand ready to assist you in any way we can and the Rhode Island Film & TV Office is always here to help you make some movie magic!
