Film Friendly Community

Elgin is a Texas Film Friendly Community working regularly with movies, commercial photo shoots, music videos, commercials, and independent films.  From unique turn of the century brick craftsmanship through the Historic Downtown District to industrial structures, from farm land, to downtown loft spaces that feel like you’re in New York City, Elgin has great locations and can expedite permitting approvals.
