Cherokee Nation Film Office
America’s first tribal film commission is in the film-friendly state of Oklahoma. The Cherokee Nation Film Office offers up to $1 million in cash rebates annually for qualified production expenses, including wages for Indigenous talent and crew, occurring within Cherokee Nation. Here, tallgrass prairie lands, tall timber forests, lakes and streams, historic landmarks, modern urban development, and small-town Americana provide the perfect backdrop to tell your story.
The Cherokee Nation reservation spans 7,000 square miles across five distinct eco-regions in northeast Oklahoma, near travel and film hubs like Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, and Dallas. The area features unique film-friendly locations and many tribally owned historical and cultural sites.
Productions looking to maximize time on set, reduce production costs, and create new worlds may utilize Cherokee Film Studios. Its soundstage includes a real-time virtual production (xR) studio, with accompanying edit suites, control room, pro-grade audio booth, crew and client lounges as well as hair and makeup facilities.
To add to your production value, Cherokee Nation Film Office offers first of their kind directories connecting you to Native American above-the-line and below-the-line crew, actors, extras, voice talent and service providers in Cherokee Nation.
