Tennessee Film, Entertainment & Music Commission Incentives
As part of ECD, the Tennessee Film, Entertainment & Music Commission (TFEMC) incentives are designed to capitalize on Tennessee’s current entertainment assets and explores opportunities for the industry’s expansion and job creation.
Effective July 1, 2012, projects with budgets over $200,000 will be eligible to receive grants equal to 25 percent of their qualified Tennessee expenditures. Previously, the combined grant and tax credit system awarded a 17 percent grant and 15 percent refundable tax credit only to productions with budgets over $1 million.
*Anticipated incentives are funds that have been approved and allocated by ECD pending the production company’s submitted records.
