Hi all. Just returned from Film Florida meetings in Jacksonville. I have to give a shout out to my friends at the Jacksonville Film and Television Commission and Liz Morgan PR for hosting a great meeting in a fine city (maybe I'm a bit biased since I grew up in that neck of the woods?).
The meetings were highly productive, focused namely on Florida's film and entertainment industry incentive. As many of you are aware, funding for the film incentive was cut by $20 million last year, leaving Florida scrambling to compete with states that offer greater incentives. It's important that we all reach out to our legislators with a unified message that explains why our incentive is so important.
Our message is simple -
OUR INDUSTRY IS A PROVEN REVENUE-ATTRACTOR; ONE THAT CAN AND SHOULD BE A PART OF ANY STIMULUS PLAN TO BRING FLORIDA OUT OF ITS ECONOMIC DECLINE.
Take action - together we can make a difference.
