Arkansas Production Alliance designed to boost location filming
Arkansas has launched a new organisation designed to boost location filming in the state. The Arkansas Production Alliance – dubbed Arfilm – has a new website powered by Reel-Scout that will list all the state’s potential filming locations.
The alliance itself comprises four separate agencies and organisations including Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce and the state’s Economic Development Commission’s Arkansas Film Commission.
Today, we have modest, but competitive incentives [and] we’re growing our crew base.

Martin M Rhodes is Chairman of the Little Rock Regional Chamber: “Today, we have modest, but competitive incentives, we’re growing our crew base ... and thanks to our partners in north-west Arkansas, we now have the most powerful locations, crew and support content management system in the business.”
Arkansas doesn’t have a high filmmaking profile in the US, although it offers a 15% rebate. The feature film Mud, with Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey, filmed in eastern parts of the state and performed well recently in Cannes.
