“The City of Edmond is honored to be recognized as an Oklahoma Film Friendly Community,” said City Manager Larry Stevens. “In recent years, we have seen the great benefit of working closely with movie productions in our city and want to ensure that everyone in the future knows that Edmond is ‘A Great Place to Film’.”
Located north of Oklahoma City, the City of Edmond features unique shopping and dining options, hiking and biking trails throughout its many city parks and historic sites, like the 1889 Territorial Schoolhouse and the University of Central Oklahoma’s Old North, which have proven to be attractive sites for filmmakers. The City of Edmond has welcomed many recent film productions, including “Dotty and Soul”, “A Country Romance”, “Deadly Misconduct”, “Family Camp” and the upcoming Lionsgate theatrical release “American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story”.
“We’re thrilled to announce the City of Edmond as the latest community to achieve film friendly certification through the Oklahoma Film Friendly Community Program,” said OF+MO Director Tava Maloy Sofsky. “We appreciate the city’s long-standing support of the film and television industry in their community and look forward to the future of production in this area.”
