Virginia Film Industry Has $382 Million Economic Impact

Filmmaking in Virginia had a $382 million economic impact on the commonwealth’s economy in 2013, 16% more than in the previous year, as the television and moviemaking industry in the state continues to grow.

Two of the most significant projects from last year were AMC’s revolutionary spy series “Turn” and the National Geographic movie “Killing Kennedy.” Feature-length films included the civil war drama The Field of Lost Shoes, filmed in Lexington and Richmond, and Big Stone Gap, filmed in Wise County.
