Why shoot your next film, video, commercial or television production in Brownsville? Aside from great weather, unique locations and easy access from anywhere in the country we’re the city that will make you feel welcome.

The Brownsville Border Film Commission will assist you and your crews with location finding, City permissions (no permits required for most filming) lodging and catering requirements. We work closely with all City departments to support your needs. Our uniformed services, both police and fire are accustomed to working with industry professionals. Whether it be traffic control, emergency standby or on-camera requirements our officers are ready to help.

Brownsville / Matamoros offers you the opportunity of shooting in two countries with minimal travel. Our ties to Mexico are strong and you will find that shooting on both sides of the border affords you an unusually pleasant experience. Our Commission can assist with your needs in Matamoros as easily as we can in Brownsville. The cooperation between our two cities is unmatched anywhere on the border.

We’re committed to making your project a success and your stay on the border a memorable and enjoyable one. We’re the last stop in the US and the first stop in Mexico.
