Filming In McIntosh
McIntosh County is a film-friendly community! Our unique coastal flavor and undiscovered beauty make us the perfect location for filming undisturbed. Yet, while we are a relatively untouched coastal county, one-third of our pristine lands are owned either by state or federal entities ~ and each have their own permitting requirements. Unless you are extremely well-versed in boundary lines for these properties, please contact our Film & Media Liaison for more information on required Permits for your chosen area of McIntosh.
