NWA Film Commission minutes and financials are available upon request.


The Northwest Arkansas Film & Entertainment Commission was founded by the major Northwest Arkansas cities through

their advertising and promotion commissions. FILMNWA is a collaboration with the State of Arkansas Film Commission

Office and the Arkansas Production Alliance. The Board includes representatives from each city along with representatives

from the academic, film, music, arts and entertainment industry sectors.

Our regional team approach to production provides producers with seamless, easy access to everything the region has to offer. Our goal is to ensure the most efficient, effective and economical production experience possible.
