Lunched in 2013, Produce Iowa is the official State Office of Media Production. Its mission is to promote and facilitate media production in the state in order to develop a more sustainable creative economy in Iowa. Produce Iowa helps to connect the media producer's wants and needs to the resources and solutions in our state. An essential tool is its Media Production Directory available 24/7 with Iowa crew and business listings along with a location database of available properties for filming. The office also supports community film festivals and educational experiences to engage Iowans and encourage cultural storytelling.
