Minnesota’s Production Credits are Dazzling

Over the past 50 years, Minnesota has hosted many television shows, large studio pictures and independent films.

North Country — the 2005 drama film starring Charlize Theron — was filmed in Eveleth, Virginia, Chisholm, Hibbing and Minneapolis, and continues to leave its mark on Minnesota’s northern communities. Other big studio favorites include Grumpy Old Men, Iron Will, A Prairie Home Companion, The Mighty Ducks and Fargo. Award-winning indie films have included Dear White People, A Serious Man, Factotum and Sweet Land.

On the television side, Minnesota is the backdrop for top-rated shows on ABC, Amazon, HGTV, The Travel Channel, National Geographic, The Food Network, Lifetime and Netflix, including Bizarre Foods and 20/20: In An Instant.
