About the Maine Film Office

As the official liaison between the film industry, state agencies, and production companies, the Maine Film Office (MFO) markets Maine as a filming location for all forms of production including feature films, television, digital media and catalog shoots.

From its bustling cities and small villages to remote forests and rugged coastline dotted with lighthouses, Maine depicts quintessential New England at its best and can also double for many other geographic locations. Your footage will be realistic and authentic, and you have the added bonus of living in the beautiful state of Maine while you work.

While Maine’s natural beauty and varied landscapes make Maine a desirable filming location, the state’s reputation as film friendly is undeniable. MFO aids productions by assisting with finding support services and resources within Maine, offering incentives, and working with communities to prepare them for productions of all types and sizes.

With a skilled and talented pool of local production crews, MFO will point you in the right direction and help you find the best possible local talent to fit your needs.

"We have been fortunate to have made two movies in Maine — The Way We Get By and Beneath The Harvest Sky.” Maine is a very special state in that there are so many options for locations. Given its size, you can travel to northern Maine, southern Maine, all along the coast, and tell a number of different stories in totally unique worlds with each film having very distinctive looks. The abundance of locations combined with the incredible generosity of the people and communities, make filmmaking in Maine a pure joy. We would not be filmmakers today without the support from the people of Maine and we will be forever grateful."

- Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet, The Way We Get By and Beneath the Harvest Sky
