Popular film publication MovieMaker Magazine has started revealing winning locations for its annual “Top 10 Best Places To Live and Work as a Moviemaker” listing. And the Bluff City made the cut for its 2014 edition.

Ranked No. 9 on the list, Memphis was selected as a great location for filmmakers due to boasting valuable but reasonably-priced services and a powerful film culture. Free office space on Beale Street, discounted police rates, various locations to film at for free, and the city's annual Indie Memphis Film Festival were among the resources highlighted by the publication.

Some notable movies that have been filmed in Memphis include Hustle & Flow, Walk The Line, Oscar-snagging documentary Undefeated, and The Client. Memphis has been ranked on MovieMaker's annual list three times so far.
