Film Commission


Delaware County, New York is stunning beautifully, blissfully untouched and wildly rural. The County has quaint small towns and rolling landscapes. We are the home of incredible architecture, unique interiors, wide open spaces and we are the perfect place for you to develop the backdrop of your choice.

The newly formed Great Western Catskills Film Commission has been created with the support of Delaware County Board of Supervisors, under the funding of the Delaware County Occupancy Tax, with the primary goal of inviting and engaging productions of all sizes and budgets to consider Delaware County. Our County is open, our businesses are excited to have you, and our film office is responsive and eager to help you film and shoot.

Just a few hours North of New York City, Delaware County is so close and yet a world away. Our small towns and quaint shops could be the perfect backdrop for your film or television show. A rustic cabin on hundreds of acres of land might be the perfect setting for your next photo shoot. From a historic grist mill and sawmill to the 1948 Rip Van Winkle Flyer vintage train car, Delaware County has a lot to offer for your production. The newly formed Great Western Catskills Film Commission is here to help. Working closely with our partners in Albany and the surrounding Catskills counties, we are ready to help.
