Thanks to a moderate climate, a diversity of natural beauty, rural and urban locations, and generous incentives offered by the state, North Carolina has become quite popular as a backdrop for local, independent and major film productions. Among the numerous films that have done location shooting here in recent years are The Green Mile, The Hunger Games, Iron Man 3, A Walk To Remember, and Forrest Gump, to name a few. Additionally, a number of popular television series have been filmed in North Carolina, including Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, and Revolution.
