“Country of Georgia Makes Pitch to Become Major Filming Destination”

In an article published on Variety.com, Georgia is described as an up-and-coming filming destination for international filmmakers. The “rugged and beautiful nation nestled between the Caucasus Mountains” is now “on their minds when planning future productions,” the article says.

It tells stories of filmmakers who instigated this interest. Firstly, cinematographer and director Phedon Papamichael is mentioned, who “first went to Georgia 19 years ago to shoot Nana Dzhordzhadze’s “27 Missing Kisses,” and recently shot for 15 days in the country for Levan Koguashvili’s “Brighton 4,” which is now moving to Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach to complete the story about a Georgian Olympic wrestler visiting his son in New York.”  Phedon Papamichael intends to put that into practice on his next film in Georgia, a comic road movie called “Good Company,” which he plans to direct in the fall. “There’s a lot of potential here. It’s a very exciting time for them.”

Georgia’s safety is mentioned by Turkish director Tolga Ornek, who is prepping a TV show to be shot here. “Ornek has no concerns about safety. “Georgia is extremely safe, incredibly friendly, and corruption-free.”

The article mentions that “as well as serving international productions, Georgia is building a reputation for creatively led homegrown movies. Nikolaj Nikitin, who leads the Berlinale’s selection of films from Eastern Europe, describes the country as a “hotspot.”
