Worldwide states, countries and jurisdictions everywhere are increasing their film tax incentives, credits and rebate programs aimed at luring film production companies to their areas. They all realize that film production has an economic activity multiplier effect and actively work to draw film producers and directors to make their movies in their towns, villages, cities, provinces and states.
