Who would have thought that these highly reviewed movies had some ties to the Hudson Valley?


Over the past few years the Hudson Valley has gotten the reputation of being the new Hollywood. There seems to have been a surge in film and television production recently. The productions are larger and the casts seem to have more prominent celebrities but the Hudson Valley being a prime spot for filming is not a new concept by any means.

There have been several film and television productions that have taken place in our region and the list surprisingly goes back to the 1960's. Many believe that the film industry is becoming a vital part of the Hudson Valley's economy. It certainly adds a special "wow factor" to specific cities and businesses used as a location. The celebrities that come with these projects also seem to help or region. In fact, sometimes they purchase property here or even open businesses of their own.
