Memphis, Tennessee is the largest city in the state, anchoring a greater metro population of over 1.2 million people along the mighty Mississippi River on the western edge of the state. Memphis has great historical significance, especially in the entertainment industry, being the hometown of Elvis Presley and of Sun Records (the birthplace of rock Ôn’ roll). Today, Memphis is still known for a vibrant blues scene along historic Beale Street. Memphis is also historic in the civil rights movement, as the place where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.

Memphis’ rich, colorful history and strategic location, combined with generous tax incentives offered by the state of Tennessee, make this city a hotspot for location filming. In fact, IMDB lists over 300 films, TV shows, documentaries and specials that have been shot in the area.  Among them are movies such as Walk the Line, Road Trip, Cast Away, 3000 Miles to Graceland, The Firm and The Client, just to name a few. If you’re looking for a career as a film director, film producer, film editor or otherwise, Memphis provides plenty of opportunity to learn as an alternative to moving to New York or Los Angeles.

Understandably, the frequent filming activity in Memphis makes it a great connection point for filmmaking professionals and film students alike. At FILM CONNECTION, we pair you with a working professional for hands-on training in a real-world environment, where you will make lots of industry connections that can lead to future employment.
