OUR MISSION

The mission of the Cherokee Nation Film Office is to increase the presence of Native Americans in every level of the film and television industries, while creating opportunities for economic development and jobs in the Cherokee Nation.

The Cherokee Nation Film Office is working diligently to make our part of Oklahoma a popular destination for film and television projects. The 14 counties of the Cherokee Nation offer a rich backdrop for storytelling. From the foothills of the Ozark Mountains to tallgrass prairies and urban cityscapes, filmmakers will find diverse locations to serve every type of project. In addition to fantastic location options, the film office also offers concierge services and databases for crew, talent and businesses to help filmmakers make the best of their time here in the Cherokee Nation.

Our partnerships with the Oklahoma Film & Music Office and the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts and Culture triples the benefit of filming in the Cherokee Nation.

WHY FILM HERE?

The state of Oklahoma offers one of the best film incentive programs in the country. Combine that with the services of the Cherokee Nation Film Office and you get a filming experience like none other.
