WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – MovieMaker is calling Wilmington one of the "Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker in 2014."

The magazine ranked the Port City in second place in its list of Top 5 Small Cities for moviemaking.

Moviemaker is compiling lists of the Top 10 Big Cities, Top 5 Small Cities and Top 5 Towns for filmmaking.

The full list will be published in MovieMaker‘s Winter 2014 issue which hits newsstands January 28.

According to the magazine, Wilmington makes the list because it served as the location for three of the top grossing movies of 2013, Iron Man 3, We're the Millers and The Conjuring.

It also credits film festivals, including Cucalorus and Surfalorus, for making the city a great place for filmmakers.
