Abstract

Twenty-five years after "The Bridges of Madison County" first lit up the big screen, we're certain it's made a lasting impact on Iowa. The movie was released in theaters June 2, 1995, and the rest is history. This Iowa story was first a book by Rockford, Iowa, native Robert James Waller and then adapted for the screen by Hollywood director Clint Eastwood (pictured above with co-star Meryl Streep in a photo from Warner Bros. Pictures). From the book, to the movie, to the annual festival in Winterset, to the thousands of tourists from around the world who flock year-round to Madison County businesses, it's amazing to consider the cultural and economic impact this film has had on our state. We can't wait to tell more Iowa stories and create more homegrown films through our Greenlight Grants, which we hope will make stars out of more Iowa filmmakers and communities.
