How to find Best Film/Photo location for your production needs

Best Picture - Successful production starts with location scouting. 

Art Factory is a City-within-a City; nearly 300,000 sf of historic factory loft space on a 5-acre, 21 building campus located 12 miles from NYC. Art Factory has adapted this 180 year old former rope factory which lies adjacent to the new Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park to a vibrant campus used for creative business, community, shopping, dining and events.  Visit the Art Factory to browse our retail shops, dine in our cafe, scout for your film or photo shoot, meet our many creative vendors or check out our amazing wedding lofts and meet with our design team.
