Filming in Southern Oregon

Discover Southern Oregon, friendly to a filmmaker’s eye as well as budget, where incredible locations, experienced crews, strong film incentives and no state sales tax have attracted industry professionals from across the country and around the world.Capture undeveloped woodlands, pristine mountain lakes, and wild-running rivers. Find small towns with quaint Main Streets, covered bridges, and historic structures. Or big city settings with modern glass and steel buildings, busy shopping malls and suburban neighborhoods.

Lighthouses and fishing ports, hidden coves and soaring sand dunes dot the coast. The interior stretches from dense forests to rich agricultural valleys to lonely deserts in turn romantic and austere. Across the region, vistas stretch to the horizon, unbroken by sight of human influence.

Many filmmakers, technicians and talent live in Southern Oregon, drawn by the active filming community, abundant recreational and cultural activities and overall high quality of life.  The region is perhaps best known as the home of the internationally renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, delighting theatergoers for over 70 years, but residents will tell you that is merely the beginning.

The heart of Southern Oregon lies right on Interstate 5, and Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport (MFR) handles direct air traffic from 8 major hubs across the Western US, making the region easily accessible by road and air from Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Portland, Seattle and more.
