“I’d love to make more movies in Knoxville and I know other people here in Los Angeles would like to do the same—not only because of the dollars and cents of the incentives, but also because of the hospitality. It’s a real one-two punch that benefits production. We’re beyond grateful, not only because it made the process very pleasant, but it really did benefit the film in so many ways that money just can’t buy.”

– Adam Rifkin, Writer/Director, Dog Years


“As a producer focused on building film communities both domestically and internationally, I’m always weighing many factors in deciding where to take future production Tennessee, and especially Knoxville, easily check all of those boxes necessary to creating a solid foundation for bringing ongoing work to the state, and the enthusiasm, sincerity and integrity with which the local crew and film commission approach their work takes the filmmaking experience over the top. It’s truly been a pleasure to work here and I look forward to many more projects to come.”
