Orange County NY Film

Founded in 2013, the film office began in order to better represent the region to incoming and potential film productions. At the start of 2019, the film office came under the umbrella of the Orange County Tourism Department. Our role is to act as a liaison for the film industry with the government agencies in Orange County. We’re also working with local talent, crew and businesses to establish an infrastructure in the county, setting up contacts within the municipalities and streamlining paperwork, so it’s easy for filmmakers to come here and do business.

The Orange County Film Office is a division of the Orange County NY Tourism Office. Orange County is one of the most beautiful counties in New York. Approximately 50 miles north of New York City, Orange County offers everything from urban landscapes, historic architecture, beautiful farmland, rolling hills, picturesque villages, tranquil lakes, quaint main streets, the majestic Hudson River on our eastern border, and the beautiful Delaware River on our western border. In addition to scenic locations, we have properties across the county such as empty school buildings, office buildings, old psychiatric centers, and former camps – all waiting to be featured in YOUR next film.

Orange County is situated at the intersection of three significant interstates – the NYS Thruway, Route 17, and Route 84. Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, as well as the smaller Orange County Airport, both allow for easy access by air, and Metro North Railroad and NJ Transit provide train access. Orange County is also home to state-of-the art sound stages Umbra of Newburgh. Making use of either of these qualified sound stages will allow production companies to take advantage of New York’s generous 35% tax credit, while giving them access to some of the best locations the state has to offer. We are easy to get to, easy to work with, and we make it easy to find great locations! Orange County… the friendliest place to film in all of New York State!
