HB17 Film Incentive Fund
The Motion Picture Incentive Fund gives money to filmmakers in exchange for bringing their production to Utah. Here are some facts: The motion picture industry has spent over 1.2 BILLION dollars in Utah the last 12 years. Using the film incentive fund, Utah’s production increased from $5.3 million in summer of 2003 to $9.2 million in summer 2004. A modest investment produced a 74% increase in production. The incentive fund generates huge amounts of cash and high paying jobs. If we don't offer the money, the industry will go elsewhere and we'll lose out big time. Fully funding HB17 is a good economic move for the state. The information above was provided by the Utah Film Commission.
