“The Hunger Games,” shot in the lush woodlands of Transylvania County in North Carolina, opened in theatres March 23, 2012. It is one of over a dozen films shot recently in the “Land of Waterfalls” —the impact that likely will be felt on tourism and jobs for years to come. The natural beauty isn’t the only incentive for production companies to locate films in North Carolina. The state offers a 25 percent tax credit for productions spending over half a million dollars, and a generous lodging refund for visits exceeding 90 days. It’s a win-win situation that employs local actors and actresses to use as extras, fuels the local economy by employing construction workers, restaurant and lodging personnel for film crews as well as boosting the state’s tourism, especially for such highly touted films as Transylvania County’s “The Hunger Games.”

Other films shot here in Western North Carolina include “Thunder Road,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” and “The Healer.” “Iron Man 3” is prepping locally; shooting on the popular film series expects to begin soon. After hitting a tourism low in 2010, Governor Bev Perdue’s tax credit has positively impacted visitation to state attractions, including parks and welcome centers, over 21 percent. The only thing that the locals ask is that you treat the beautiful woodlands and waterfalls of the state with respect, enjoy it and make some great memories.
