Incentives Session @ Santa Fe Film Festival today...
NEW MEXICO FILM INCENTIVES:
CAN THE SUCCESS BE DUPLICATED?
Film production has not only doubled, but tripled and even quadrupled since Gov. Bill Richardson, with the blessings of the New Mexico Legislature, enacted sweeping tax rebates and incentives to lure Hollywood to the state. Now, inquiring minds want to know: Can those same incentives be expanded to support the growth of a more sustainable and permanent multimedia cluster grounded in New Mexico, from soundstages and post-production houses to game designers and digital developers? Will the Legislature buy into sweetening the pot, or will the film industry have to prove itself before more gains can be made?
Moderator: Alton Walpole, president of Mountainair Films, Santa Fe's largest, full-service film production company
