Film Incentives

New York State’s 2010-2011 Executive Budget includes a multi-year agreement to extend New York State’s Film Production Tax Credit Program for an additional five years and expand the Program to include a New York State Post Production Credit. The New York State Post Production Credit was created as an incentive to encourage post production in New York for projects produced outside of New York or that do not otherwise qualify for the New York State Film Production Tax Credit. Eligible productions that complete 75% of their post production in New York State can now apply for a 10% credit for such post production work.

For specific questions about both programs please call the New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture & Television Development at (212) 803-2330 or visit the New York State Film Incentives website.
