About Yellowstone Film Ranch


Our mission is to be the first and best point of contact for Montana’s burgeoning film industry. Combining the value of a full-service production studio and the state’s top western town with industry-leading capabilities in production planning, location services, and maximizing the value of Montana’s tax credits and other production incentives.

The western backlot is styled after a late 1800s gold rush town uniquely located in Montana’s pristine Paradise Valley. The vast sagebrush and forested serenity offers 360 degree view of glacier mountain peaks, rolling hills, and Emigrant Peak.

Yellowstone Film Ranch is a period studio featuring eight fully functional interior/exterior sets with some support buildings and façades to create the look of 28 unique structures with two intersecting streets. Of these finished interiors include a church with preacher quarters, town hall, livery, jail, and saloon with brothel. There are several support structures available for interchangeable interior sets. Additional period sets and landscapes are scattered throughout surrounding areas, including a prairie house and barn, wooden log cabin by a stream, and a mine.

 As Yellowstone Film Ranch expands, infrastructure of a train station, native village will be placed upon the ranch.
