Filming in Government Owned Buildings

Need a classic, distinct building for a movie or television show?  Perhaps you'd like to get in on the action and use one or more of our Government-owned buildings in your next project.  Federal buildings are located in cities of all sizes across the country and filming in the South is very popular right now.  If you are interested, give us a call and we can help arrange it. Here's a link to our regional catalog of available facilities and associated points of contact: Listing of Buildings Available for Film in the Southeast Sunbelt Region

Filming in Historic Buildings

We want to encourage the use of our historic buildings in film and television productions, to showcase and support this legacy by creating opportunities for the public to experience these buildings through film.  All revenue earned through this program is reinvested in our historic inventory helping to fund important conservation and rehabilitation projects not otherwise possible. Filming and other special event space rentals help support federal preservation goals by generating revenue to keep historic federal buildings occupied, in good repair, and economically viable while contributing to their use and enjoyment by the public. Using these locations goes a long way in promoting, protecting, and preserving these national treasures.  

Arranging filming is easy. Take a look at our full building list and contact the appropriate building manager with questions.
