Letter from Heather Page, Director of the Texas Film Commission and Office of Governor Greg Abbott:
For more than a century, Texas has been home to some of the greatest film productions in the world. To capitalize on this rich history, the Texas Film Commission launched the Texas Film Trails program to connect film fans and the public to filming locations featured in our state's most popular film and television shows, with the goal of promoting tourism in communities throughout the state. Ultimately, our goal with each Texas Film Trail is to unleash long-term economic benefits in areas that host filming.
To that end, we are releasing the new Texas Classics Film Trail, which leads visitors on a self-guided tour of iconic sites from famous Texas-made films and television shows. On the trail, we proudly feature Parker as a destination for television fans by recognizing the Southfork Ranch as a location seen in the Texas television classic, Dallas. To see the Texas Classics Film Trail, please visit https://gov.texas.gov/film/trails. We are promoting the film trail through our social media and the State of Texas tourism website, http://traveltexas.com. We are also sharing this information with other city representatives.
Texas is a state rich in cultural heritage, and its film history has not only been a point of pride for Texans, but has served as a unique way to share our culture. We would like nothing more than to see the Texas communities that inspired great films benefit from the interest in Texas films and culture through increased tourism. Thus, we hope including the location in the trail will draw visitors to your area and provide opportunities for increased tourism within your community.
If you have any questions regarding the Texas Film Trails program, the Texas Classics Film Trail in which the community you represent is featured, or any of the other resources we have at the TFC, please do not hesitate to contact me. We appreciate all you do to support film and television production in Texas and hope your constituents will continue to experience the economic benefits of on-location filming and film tourism for years to come.
