  California Tax Credit Program Update

According to the California Film Commission, California's newly-expanded Film & Television Tax Credit Program 2.0 launched without a hitch last month with the first application period for television projects. 


A total of 11 projects were selected to receive $55.2 million in first-round credits available for new TV series, miniseries, movies of the week and pilots. An additional $27.6 million was allocated for series relocating to California from out-of-state. The selected projects include six new TV series, one pilot and four relocating series (from Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland and North Carolina). 

Based on data provided with each application, the 11 projects will generate an estimated $544 million in direct in-state spending, including $216 million in wages for below-the-line crew members. 
The next application window - geared specifically for non-independent feature films and independent projects - is scheduled for July 13-25. This second round of credits will include $48.3 million for non-independent features and $6.9 million for independent projects.
