North Carolina film industry regains footing with revived film incentives

The North Carolina film and TV scene is star-studded with blockbuster hits that were filmed in the state. At its peak, has hosted over 800 films and numerous TV shows and documentaries. The film industry takes advantage of North Carolina's diverse landscape for a variety of movies, which pumps money and tourism back into the state economy. But in recent years, directors have been filming their productions elsewhere, and the state government has made laws that pull funding away from keeping the cinema scene alive.
