The Richmond District of the Virginia Production Alliance offers opportunities for all of Central Virginia. Our location in the state capital helps facilitate the Alliance’s advocacy efforts. Richmond also hosts: Film Day on Capitol Hill, the State of the industry networking and trade event, and the Annual Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP) show.

Richmond and its surroundings have hosted several major film and television productions, such as: Spielberg’s Lincoln, Homeland: Season 7, Jeff Nichols’ Loving, the AMC series TURN: Washington’s Spies, the PBS series Mercy Street, and the HBO mini-series John Adams just to name a few. Because of its history in film, television, commercial, and documentary production, Richmond has developed an experienced crew base along with a community of talented independent filmmakers and film festivals.

Richmond and Petersburg are historic cities, that offer exceptional locations for filming.  Located nearby is a historic backlot featuring a farm set, period ships, a wharf area and acres of undeveloped land.  Richmond is known for its eclectic architecture, nearby rural areas, and burgeoning culinary scene, among the best in the nation.
