Iowa is home to some of the country’s most unique backdrops, and is a central location for production companies to use as a filming locality.

With rolling hills and picturesque geological formations like limestone walls and caves, Iowa is a desirable location for filming for scouts because of its plethora of viable local talent, and its location between two rivers.

Iowa has served as a home to a number of successful feature films, music videos and independent films in recent years, and has enhanced the economic initiative to film in Hawkeye State.

Iowa’s Film, Television and Video Projection Promotion Program gives filmmakers and opportunity to save up to 50% on a production when everything is complete.

Both investors and directors are eligible for a 25% transferable tax credit on qualifying expenditures.
