Rockmart adds film ordinance to city code


Rockmart is looking to take a shot at gaining attention on the silver screen as well, and now have a film ordinance they can point to when blockbuster stars or smaller productions want to use the local area as a setting for their next hit.

City officials approved of a new film ordinance tailored much like what the City of Cedartown previously passed in 2018 after their experience with the filming of Season 3 of “Hap and Leonard” on Main Street.

Having learned some lessons about what to do and what not to do, Cedartown officials crafted language that would allow pedestrians who are filming for their own use or for non-profits to create films, while establishing fees for larger productions and requirements for permits to control what will and won’t be allowed on downtown streets.
