San Diegans love discovering and contributing to great motion pictures. San Diego has a great disposition for becoming a film rich city. As the seventh largest city in the nation, it is a culturally diverse, major metropolitan center with a pleasant mix of canyons, valleys and mesas creating natural barriers that allow the city to breathe, giving it a small town feel.

San Diego has been positively influenced by the talented film industry in Hollywood, but has managed to avoid the sprawl and gloom of other major cities.

The city of San Diego promotes the local film scene and visitors will a find a film-friendly atmosphere that has been fostered for more than three decades. San Diego invites film makers to take advantage of no cost permission processes, free public properties, cooperative communities and local governments, and a host of other incentives to interest business to work in the region.

With San Diego’s ideal weather, beautiful and varied landscapes, multiple incentives, and film-friendly atmosphere, San Diego is a filming destination difficult to ignore and even more difficult to leave.

Popular Films and Television Series filmed in San Diego include:  Almost Famous, Traffic, American Idol, & So You Think You can Dance
