Rhode Island is a bustle of entertainment today, hosting a star-studded cast on Federal Hill at The Old Canteen, shooting for the much-anticipated independent film, Infinitely Polar Bear.

The film is centered around a father with bi-polar disorder, played by Mark Ruffalo, who struggles to take care of his two young daughters as his wife, played by Zoe Saldana, tries to get her MBA. All the while, the 4 characters work through all of the obstacles and pitfalls of trying to stay together as a family.

 The production was welcomed with open arms by a number of Rhode Island officials, praising it as a wonderful boost to Rhode Island's economy and art scene.

Director Maya Forbes had great things to say about the state, saying "We are thrilled to be shooting in Rhode Island. From the people to the locations to the food, we are having an amazing experience. We've got a big love for little Rhody!"

Shooting is scheduled for approximately six weeks in and around the state capital, so lucky Providence residents with a sharp eye may very well have a chance to meet some of their favorite actors!
