Rebates to make movies in Minnesota.  Bigger rebates to make movies in greater Minnesota.  Additional rebates from the IRRRB to make movies in the Northland.  Riki McManus, the director of the Upper Minnesota Film Office,  says movie makers are eyeing Minnesota as more than just a location for films set in the Midwest.  It turns out we're a good stand- in for the coast of California ... or even the beaches of Jamaica.
