Henry River Mill Village in Hildebran, NC is one of the filming locations of The Hunger Games movie. The SyFy Channel show “Hollywood Treasures” was at the village Tuesday to film an episode.
In the meantime, Phillips and Burke County Travel and Tourism will continue to promote the area as a filming site for “The Hunger Games.” He said the organization plans to sell T-shirts, both fitted and traditional styles, which say, “District 12” with the words “Real or not real” written below. The words “Real or not real,” refer to the ambiguity of the relationship between the characters Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, who are both competitors in the “Hunger Games” and both from District 12. “The Hunger Games” movie is the first in a book trilogy from author Suzanne Collins. Other books in the trilogy are “Catching Fire,” and “Mockingjay.”
