Movie Sites of the South

Florida Debuts Movie Site Guide

Ready, Set, Action!

FL Debuts Movie Site Guide 

At the turn of the 20th Century, New York-based moviemakers flocked to Florida, lending it the nickname "The Winter Film Capital of the World." Between 1908 and the 1920s, more than 20 silent films were produced in North Florida.
 
During more recent decades, more modern flicks including "True Lies" and "The Truman Show" have been produced across the state.

Film buffs might travel in search of movie sites across the Sunshine State. Visit Florida, the Governor's Office of Film and Entertainment, and Film Florida have introduced a new "Map and Guide to Florida Movies" brochure and Web site.
 
From "Armageddon" sites at Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island and Titusville, FL, in 1998 to the Greatest Show on Earth at Sarasota Springs, Sarasota in 1952, the guide details the movies made in Florida.
 
It also provides images, a trivia game, and links to movie data bases and film festivals. The free guide is available at any of Florida's official Welcome Centers, or online at www.movies.visitflorida.com.
