The Santa Clarita Valley Remains an Important Hub for the Film Industry


Hollywood North has become a common moniker of the Santa Clarita Valley in reference to the large amount of filming that takes place here. And it’s true – there are many TV shows, feature films, music videos and commercials shot in our region. The last fiscal year was another incredible year for the SCV, in part thanks to the City of Santa Clarita’s film-friendly attitude and Film Incentive Program and the California Film and Television Tax Credit Program which has brought many productions “home” from locations out of state.
