Despite shifting incentives, filmmakers still look to Michigan

Sep 17, 2013

Michigan’s film industry has seen a few changes over the past 5 years. Under Gov. Jennifer Granholm, refundable tax credits for films were unlimited. For the 2012 fiscal year, under Gov. Snyder, a cap of 25 million cap was placed on film incentives. The following year the cap was increased to 50 million.

Margaret O’Riley is the director of the Michigan Film Office. She said despite the changes producers are still looking to work in Michigan.
