Kansas to join 3 states to market region to film industry


TOPEKA, Kan. – Film offices in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska are teaming up with Kansas City, Missouri attract more film producers looking for locations to the four states.

A news release from the Kansas Department of Commerce said the Kansas Creative Arts Commission has formed an informal partnership with similar agencies in Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas City to collaborate on ways to market the region and entice the film industry to film more movies in the region.

“In the absence of tax credits for films or other formal financial incentives that we can use, the partnership is a way for these states to come together to make larger-scale film projects possible in this region,” said CAIC Executive Director Peter Jasso.

The release said the partnership has already assisted with the production of one film, American Honey, starring Shia LaBeouf and McCaul Lombardi, that is scheduled for release in 2016.

CAIC is part of the Kansas Department of Commerce.
