Frederick offers many opportunities for premier film locations. "Gods and Generals" was filmed in the heart of downtown, just outside the front doors of City Hall. The City’s Department of Economic Development is responsible for processing filming requests in Frederick.

A film permit is required for commercial filming on City property, such as City parks and public right-of-ways (streets and sidewalks). Learn more and apply on our Filming Permit page.
