“THE GAL WHO GOT RATTLED” Producers scouting locations in WESTERN NEBRASKA.

Welcome to the Nebraska Film Office

Nebraska has a rich heritage in the film industry. From the early work of Fred Niblo, 1920s silent film director from York, to actresses Marg Helgenberger, from North Bend and Hilary Swank from Lincoln, and director, producer and screenwriter Alexander Payne, from Omaha, the state knows how to grow and nurture talent. Keep your eyes on this site for future information related to the state’s presence in the film world.

Be sure to check out the Nebraska Independent Film Projects, Film Streams and the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center. These entities represent a small part of the infrastructure that helps Nebraska’s independent industry flourish.

A study of the film industry in Nebraska was completed by Economic Research Associates in 2002. It provides valuable information regarding the economic impact of the film industry at large and analysis of the industry in Nebraska. Read the study here.
