July 10, 2014 -- NAZ Today's Sierra Ferguson takes a trip down memory lane to commemorate the 20-year anniversary of one of the most iconic American movies - Forrest Gump. Ferguson shows the parts of the movie that were actually filmed in Northern Arizona. Twin Arrows and Downtown Flagstaff both had cameos in the production of this film.

NAU FIlm Professor Paul Helford gives his opinion on why the movie is so famous. He says the movie was a technological breakthrough, although subtle.

Flagstaff Film Office's Heather Ainardi explains that the film production industry is not as active in Flagstaff as it used to be. However, a group of constituents partnered with Northern Arizona University is trying to bring the film industry back to the area.
