Film in Los Alamos

Los Alamos loves filmmakers. And filmmakers seem to love us as well. Over the past 15 years, Los Alamos scenic and diverse locations have been utilized in dozens of major motion pictures and television programming.

On film, Los Alamos landscapes and structures have served as upstate New York, northern California, Wyoming, Montana/Canada border, Arizona, the “wild west,” and even Mongolia, China.

For example, Pajarito Mountain, our local ski destination, was the location for Godless, The Brave, Let Me In, Longmire, Only the Brave, and The Lone Ranger.

The Los Alamos Film Liaison provides film and television production support, including location scouting, resource referrals, liaison support between local public safety officials and productions crews, and other services to facilitate the cost-effective and efficient operations required by the industry. The Film Liaison also works closely with the State Film Office and regional film advocacy initiatives to promote filming in northern New Mexico.
