Canada, California, Louisiana, New Mexico, New York and the UK! With over 75 incentive programs available worldwide to choose from, where should you go? Where to produce your next film or television project is vitally important, and production incentives are one of the most critical factors in the decision. As production incentive programs across the globe continue to change and new incentive programs are introduced, the key is to approach the process with the most up-to-date information and the best partners by your side. This panel of producers and production finance executives will discuss which jurisdictions have production incentives, how they work, and the quickest way to monetize the benefit of these incentives.

Please join us for a panel discussion, during which we will discuss what you need to know to receive the financial benefits from these incentive programs, and how to avoid the pitfalls which may cost you money.
Questions may be submitted through the presentation, but you must register to participate!
