Whether it’s a movie, documentary, videogame or commercial, the production can take place here in Ohio. A variety of productions are occurring all across the state of Ohio, thanks in part to the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit provides a refundable tax credit of 30 percent on production cast and crew wages plus other eligible in-state spending. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit was created in 2009 to encourage and develop a strong film industry in Ohio.
The Ohio Development Services Agency administers the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit through the Ohio Film Office. For questions about the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit please contact the Ohio Film Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 644-5156. The local Ohio film commissions listed here are entities endorsed or supported by a local government with a commitment to the film industry as part of its economic development plan.
