Tax incentives can be frightening and can seem like instruments for large-scale productions, instruments that have little to do with the independent documentary filmmaker.
Could a strategic use of tax incentives help make your filmmaking practice more sustainable? This panel takes a step-by-step approach to demystifying tax incentives and helping documentary filmmakers understand how to utilize them. Learn from representatives from Illinois and Louisiana and ask them your questions.
This event will be live-streamed on IDA YouTube channel on August 30, 2022, 2pm CT. Live captions and ASL interpretation will be provided.
