Joint Statement Regarding Inclusion of Film and Television Production Tax Incentive in California State Budget

American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), Directors Guild of America (DGA), Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) today released the following statement:

“For the past 10 years, a united entertainment community has been telling state officials that our industry is threatened by runaway film and television production.  Film and television productions have been leaving California for tax incentives in other states and countries for years now, and like everybody else, entertainment industry workers are suffering in this economic climate.  We applaud the passage of this incentive which will help make California competitive and not only save the jobs that are being lost but generate much needed revenue for the state.”
