Luna County Film Office

Luna County has a rich history of involvement in the entertainment industry, with local filming stretching back to 1953's "The Tall Texan." Our beautiful landscape, unique history, friendly community, and cooperative local agencies make Deming and Luna County an ideal location for film and media projects. We have plenty of hotel rooms, great weather, a municipal airport capable of handling small passenger jets, and positioning on Interstate 10 and a variety of state highways (including the shortcut to Albuquerque if you're coming from the west).   

Deming's historic downtown district — dating back to the late 1800s — could serve as the backdrop for a period piece, and Luna County's diverse desert landscapes and craggy Florida Mountains can act as a double for the Middle East or a throwback to the wild west. Remnants of a once vibrant mining industry and a currently thriving agricultural industry can add flavor to most productions.

Contact film liaison Matt Robinson for more information about the area or the state's lucrative incentives for film and media productions. The Luna County Film Office can serve as your eyes and ears on the ground, and act as a middleman to make contact with property owners, other government agencies and businesses needed to help make your artistic vision a reality - and it is all at no cost to your production. The Film Office is a service established by the vision of the Luna County Board of Commissioners, because they realize film and media productions are valuable for the area's economic development and cultural heritage.
