The head of Rhode Island’s film office said tax credits helped lure an independent film production starring Mark Ruffalo. The movie will be shooting around the state until mid-May.
The film, “Infinitely Polar Bear” is based on the life of its director, who happened to have spent time in Rhode Island. Head of the state’s film office, Steven Feinberg, said Massachusetts and New York were courting the production, but Rhode Island landed the film thanks to tax credits and some unique locations.
