Research Project

Impact of the California Film and Tax Credit

IRLE researchers examined the impact of the California Film and Television Tax Credit on the location of film and TV production in the state, and the consequent economic impact on the California economy. Coordinated by IRLE Research Director Lauren Appelbaum and Chris Tilly, the project was completed with support from the Headway Project, a new nonpartisan research institute. The findings ere published in the IRLE Industry Report, “Economic and Production Impacts of the 2009 California Film and Television Tax Credit”.
