Join us this Labor Day, Monday, September 5th for a rally on the state capitol's SW grounds from 12PM to 3PM. Enjoy food, beverages, events and guest speakers in support of the Texas Film Industry. WE NEED YOU! The goal is to show up in such numbers that it commands the attention of our state legislators and the media. Drawing attention to our industry and building relationships with decision-makers is key.
The film industry is already seeing the huge impact of last year’s state budget cuts to the film incentive program, decreasing it by two-thirds. Because of this, many big productions such as, “From Dusk Til Dawn,” by Austin director Robert Rodriguez, have relocated to surrounding states with better tax incentives. Losing these big productions not only hurts those in the Texas Film Industry, but the local economy suffers as well.
The last rally on the steps of the capitol helped to pass House Bill 873 for competitive film incentives in the state of Texas. We need to get it back so that our industry and our local economy can thrive again. YOU can make the difference just by showing up. Don’t miss this opportunity to positively affect your future in the Texas Film Industry
