New York's $420 million film incentive program is one of the best in the nation. The New York State Governor's Office of Motion Picture & Television Development (MPTV) offers film, television and commercial production and post-production tax credits for qualified expenditures in New York State. These tax credit programs continue to be the principal factor cited by productions when deciding to film and produce in New York, contributing billions of dollars to the state's economy. The MPTV office helps productions navigate the landscape, serving as a liaison between production companies and city and local governments, state agencies, a network of statewide contacts, local film offices and professional location scouts and managers. In addition to our successful incentive programs, New York offers unparalleled locations, talent and world-class production and post-production facilities, underscoring the Empire State as a filmmaker's one-stop dream destination.
