Its been a terrific and packed year so far. With a very busy production season underway, summer travel plans coming and going, we’re thrilled to take a moment to share some updates and highlights from the year so far.
If you haven’t already, we hope you will join MPC today for an exciting year. Much more to come!
Film & Television Tax Incentive
We are very pleased to report that through debate of the state budget for FY2019 there were no negative proposals to alter the incentive program by the Governor, House, or Senate versions of their budgets.
Persistent advocacy pays off. We continue to lobby diligently to build support and protect the state’s Film & Television Tax Incentive program. There are a significant number of new legislators in both legislative branches and we are working very hard to engage them and educate as many as possible. Our recent advocacy actions include:
Commonwealth Magazine: Netflix, Showtime to film series in Mass
Castle Rock Premieres on Hulu
BC Media Productions
Big Brick Productions
Brookline Interactive Group
Crystal Ice Co
KPM & Associates
Middlesex Community College
Programs & Community
- We produced two great MPC Member Meetings to bring the community together with local showcases in feature production and post topics.
- We also held two special events:
Women Connect bringing over 100 industry women to hear and share stories about their careers, challenges, and accomplishments. Our hope is this event becomes a regular happening and bridges the dialogue with access and mentorship for women in the field.Storytelling for Technology also generated a packed house for a special talk and showcase with agencies, creative producers, and technologists; bringing together members from content, media production, and tech communities.
- We’ve also made great progress in our education initiatives to support the future of our industry through a very successful sold-out PA Workshop and partnering with IFFBoston for the Student Film Showcase. Our Higher Education Consortium continues to make great strides and look forward to sharing more developments on this soon.
