California Film Commissioner Colleen Bell Seeks Bigger Production Tax Credit

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

California’s newly named film commissioner is thinking big.

Colleen Bell wants to expand the state’s production tax credit program beyond its current annual allocation of $330 million — which was tripled in size in 2014 to compete effectively with New York and Georgia, then extended a year ago to 2025 with a credit of up to 25% of qualified expenditures spent in California.
