The newest holiday romantic comedy Christmas With You was filmed in New York, specifically in New York City.

Fans are really excited as there's so much thrilling holiday content coming to Netflix for the cheery Christmas season, and one of those is Christmas with You, directed by Gabriela Tagliavini. 

The film plots the story of a famous but burnt-out pop star Angelina (Aimee Garcia), who is seeking inspiration as she attempts to write a hit holiday song. She soon comes across a video from a young fan through her writer's block and creative struggles.

Angelina learns that the young fan only wishes to meet her during the holidays. The pop star instantly feels connected to this particular fan and soon decides to shake things up by visiting and fulfilling her wish.

Netflix has always been great about giving great seasonal films and this year there are so many exciting casts headlining the projects. Even though Lindsay Lohan's "Falling for Christmas" has probably received the maximum publicity, others are also in the line.

Where Was Christmas With You Filmed?

Gabriela Tangliavini's next rom-com 'Christmas With You' was filmed entirely in New York in the United States.

The trailer of the movie gives you true vibes of the magical Christmas holiday in New York and the feeling that you are experiencing something that is surreal. It showcases the very special and unique setup of the snowy and cozy holiday.

Filmed specifically in New York City, Christmas With You will reflect a real touch of the beautiful city. The principal photography for Aimee Garcia commenced in October 2021. It was wrapped up in a month or in November of the same year.

Since the plot is set in New York, it is understandable why the production team chose that particular location to shoot the project. After all, New York is a city that never sleeps and keeps you close to all the Christmas attractions.

Christmas in the city is simply delightful. The set up of the romantic comedy movie will give its viewers the experience of the chilling air that is just enough for red noses. It will feature city streets decked out in dazzling displays and shimmering lights, snowflakes, and tinsel.

Christmas With You Was Made On A Limited Budget

After watching the trailer of the movie it is hard to believe that the film has a budget of less than $10 million.

Filming around New York City definitely helped the team to make the movie with a limited budget. Nevertheless, Christmas With You doesn't disappoint its viewers and has cozy, crowd-pleasing, and warm holiday vibes that hit all the right notes.

The rom-com has a runtime of 89 minutes and will be released on Thursday, November 17, just in time for the holidays. The screenplay is written by Paco Farias and Jennifer C. Stetson from the story by German Michael Torres.
