Illinois has a distinguished filmography over the past 25 years and has established itself as a state that can harbor both blockbuster films and small independent films because of its rich collection of suburban cities on the outskirts of the windy city of Chicago.

Illinois is best known for the greater metropolitan area of Chicago, but also offers an abundance of wide open land and prairie.

The state is especially excited because of the recent passing in the general assembly of a transferable tax credit that is good for 30% on production spending including almost anything from writing and set design to camera equipment and wardrobe.
