Lights. Camera. North Carolina!
RALEIGH, N.C. — Three film productions are set to commence in North Carolina.
North Carolina Commerce Secretary John E. Skvarla III and the Economic Development Partnership of N.C. announced three productions will receive funds from the North Carolina Film and Entertainment Grant program. Each recipient will begin production within the next 60 days.
“Two of our grantees are returning to film in North Carolina and that is exactly what we want — repeat business,” Skvarla said. “We want to continue long term relationships on both the big and small screen.”
The three-hour filmed musical event “Dirty Dancing,” the independent feature film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” and a new television event series “Shots Fired” will film in North Carolina. The three projects combined are expected to have direct in-state spending of more than $64.5 million while creating approximately 7,600 job opportunities in the state.
