I recall a time in the late '80s and early '90s when many films were being made in Minnesota. Now, it seems that Canada is cheaper. Is it possible for the legislature to create some tax incentives to lure filmmakers here once again?

Minnesota does have a rebate. Cap at 10M. Total. Woefully inadequate to compete with other states. The state should either dramatically increase the cap or close the doors. Regarding the locations mentioned, for my film PATTI ROCKS, we shot up and down Hwy 61 in Newport. I remember a gas station we used because I like the polar bear in the background.
