SAN ANTONIO (January 18, 2023) – The City of San Antonio's Department of Arts & Culture and its Film Commission today announced that San Antonio has, for the fifth year in a row, been named one of MovieMaker's Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker. Featuring 25 big U.S. cities, San Antonio joins four other Texas cities on the list (Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston and Austin) and is highlighted among other film industry heavy hitters such as New Orleans, Atlanta and Vancouver.
MovieMaker compiles its annual list based on surveys, production spending, tax incentives, additional research and personal visits whenever possible. Cited as reasons San Antonio was selected, which were supported with data provided by the Film Commission, include turnkey film and free permitting on 250 city-owned locations, reinstatement of the San Antonio Supplement Film Incentive and growing film culture supported by local educational opportunities such as the University of Texas at San Antonio's new Bachelor of Fine Arts Film & Media Studies program. Additionally, other factors include overall costs of living, production resources, friendliness and authenticity.
