Amarillo even has its own Film Commission.   As time moves on, the citizens of Amarillo will start to see more and more movies being filmed in the Amarillo area.  In fact, filming of a movie about homelessness will soon start production in the Amarillo area.

A movie called Down the Arm of God will be filmed in the Texas Panhandle.

The movie follows a young pastor named Nick while he navigates the community of a small Texas town, and strives to help an encampment of homeless people escape the harsh and dangerous winter.
