THE IDAHO FILM COMPANY
Welcome to The Idaho Film Company (TIFC)!
Idaho really is more than potatoes. Stunning vistas, breathtaking mountains, lovely humans
And now Filmmaking…
At least that’s our plan.
Establishing a successful production company for the purpose of producing films and commercials in Northern Idaho. We will bringing jobs and revenue into our communities while educating local talent in the art of filmmaking. We’ve dubbed our little slice of heaven “the New Zealand of the North” and it’s all possible here.
Why North Idaho?
What’s that you say? When you think of filmmaking you don’t think of Idaho? Perhaps a quick google search for a silent film era filmmaker Nell Shipman might inspire you. While Idaho may not seem like an obvious movie-making mecca, there was a time when places like Atlanta, Austin, Louisiana and New Mexico weren’t top of mind either.
Idaho is an ideal location for filmmaking with four seasons, wide variety of terrain and communities, lush alpine mountains, deserts, small towns, big cities, farm land, mountains, rivers , natural wonders, huge lakes and reasonable temperatures!
As an added bonus, there is a growing talent pool of filmmaking professionals based in Idaho and surrounding states, Washington and Montana along with the ever expanding curriculum at Boise State University. Idaho is a short flight from LAX, making it easy to bring in cast and crew when needed. Idaho offers low-cost filmmaking, from the biggest to the smallest projects. All we ask is that you leave it better than you found it.
