Main features that make Georgia a perfect place for filming:
- Diverse climate zones
- Spectacular locations - natural and industrial landscapes, architecture

Located on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Georgia is a small country between the Black and the Caspian Seas. Georgian landscape is quite varied: deserts and subtropical areas, swamps and temperate rainforests, eternal snows and glaciers of the Caucasian mountains’ range, forests and semi-arid plains.
Assuming the small size of the country, one can easily drive from snowy-covered mountains to desert and seaside within only a few hours. Aside from climate diversity,
Georgia is also rich with its wide range of architectural styles - alongside contemporary buildings there is a mixture of local, Byzantine, Neoclassical and Soviet Modernist architecture, as well as structures dated 3rd or 4th Century BC, including cave cities, churches and fortresses.
Diverse landscapes, architecture and exotic locations make possible to portray different parts of the world in different era.
Filming in Georgia is much cheaper and easier, than in US and Western Europe or even other Eastern European countries.
Public spaces like airport, subway, harbor and railway station can also be used as a filming location easily, without excessive bureaucracy. Affordable prices and minimal regulations makes Georgia nice place to work.
In recent years Georgia hosted several international film projects like
