Memphis again a top-10 town for moviemaking

Once again, MovieMaker Magazine has put Memphis on its annual list of the top 10 “Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker 2016.”

Memphis & Shelby County Film Commissioner Linn Sitler made a presentation to the magazine’s editors, highlighting the lively local film culture, last year’s filming of the award-winning “Free In Deed” and $4 million in state film incentives earmarked for local projects.

As the magazine says: “Memphis is consistently ranked in the top 10 cheapest cities in the country. Considering Memphis’ culture and history, what bang for your buck! And not just music and BBQ; we’re talking film history too …”

Read the story here.

Memphis was first selected as a “Top Ten Movie City” in 2006. The city made the list again in 2007, 2008, and 2009 and returned again in 2014 and 2015.
