Creative Service Listings of the Sonoma County Film Office
For more than 50 years Sonoma County has played gracious host to the film industry. From “Frenchman’s Creek” in the early 40’s to the Twentieth Century Fox production of “Cheaper By the Dozen” in 2003, Sonoma County has been home to as wide a variety of movies as our multitude of locations offer. Our diversity is evident from the breathtaking Sonoma coastline, which boasts everything from sandy beaches to jagged cliffs, the beautiful vineyards that cover our hills and valleys, the ethereal redwood forest, placid lakes, meandering country roads, historic bridges and picturesque rural villages.
The Sonoma County Film Office–like Creative Sonoma–is housed in the Sonoma County Economic Development Board. It supports and facilitates Sonoma County as a location destination for film, video, and commercial production companies worldwide and helps create a “film friendly” environment for production by connecting with local government, businesses, and residents.
