The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission, like other publicly-funded film commissions in the U.S.A., works only with funded productions and does not assist producers in securing funding for projects.

The Film Commission's Website makes available hiring/casting information from third parties. This information is to be used as general information only. Although such information is believed to be generally reliable, the posting of the information on the commission website does not constitute an endorsement, recommendation, or solicitation from the Commission. Nor does the Posting imply any assurance regarding the accuracy of the information, the funding of the project, the completion of the project, or the payment to crew/vendors/cast.


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.
