As part of this continued focus on local filmmaking, Prairie Lights has initiated a number of anthology projects, Flat Water Terrors, Nebraska Noir, and an upcoming Science Fiction and Comedy series that are written and directed by Nebraskans which premiere each year at the festival

In addition, Prairie Lights Productions has appeared as a production/distribution arm of the film festival.
