Arkansas was the first state in the union to offer a financial incentive to attract production – the nickel rebate. While that pioneering incentive has more than tripled in the thirty years since it was introduced, Arkansas remains a nimble and innovative partner in materially impacting productions’ bottom lines.

The City of Eureka Springs offers a 2% tax rebate on any individual project or production filmed in the city limits of Eureka Springs!  Add that to the generous Arkansas state incentives and you’ve got a lot of incentive to film in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Ah, but there’s more – we also have several preferred vendors that offer additional discounts for your production.
