The Berkshires is the Westernmost county of Massachusetts. It is one of the great regions in the world where the physical beauty of the landscape is in a comfortable balance with society. For more than a century the region has been attracting writers, artists, and creative people from all walks of life who have come to the region for peace, inspiration, and opportunity. A wealth of world-class cultural treasures can be found across the county, including Tanglewood – the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jacob’s Pillow – the internationally recognized center for dance, MASSMoCA – one of the largest contemporary art museums in the world, The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Museum – a fantastic collection of world masterpieces, Shakespeare & Company – recognized for their unflinching commitment to the power of language, and many more.
Film and film making is well represented in the region as well. The Berkshire Film and Media Commission is the primary point of contact for the industry and a great place to start a conversation about producing your next film in the Berkshires. Berkshire Creative is a regional economic development organization focused on developing opportunities and connections for people working in creative industries.
