Fort Worth Mayor Calls for Increased Film Incentives to Boost Local Economy
- 10 months ago
Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker aims to boost the city’s film commission to attract more film and TV productions. To achieve this, Parker is advocating for a boost to Texas’ film incentives to compete with states like Louisiana and Georgia. She is traveling to Austin during the state legislative session to advocate for increased incentives.
Film incentives are financial or tax incentives provided by governments to attract film and television productions and have a significant impact on the film industry by creating jobs and boosting local economies, tourism, providing educational and training opportunities, and fostering growth in the local film industry.
Mayor Parker’s efforts to advocate for increased film incentives hold great promise for Forth Worth. By creating a favorable environment for these productions, the city has the potential to attract investment, talent, and economic growth, becoming a hub for the film industry.
