Coming soon to a theater near you: More movies made in DeKalb County.
That’s the hope for the newly created DeKalb County Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Commission, which will seek to expand the local entertainment industry.
The DeKalb Board of Commissioners voted 7-0 on Tuesday to spend $205,000 this year for the film commission, which will have one full-time and five part-time positions.
It will emulate the success of similar efforts in Atlanta and Savannah, said Andrew Greenberg, the chairman of the commission’s advisory board.
