The Syracuse Film Office works to promote, develop, and increase film & television production in the Central New York region. In conjunction with Visit Syracuse, the Syracuse Film Office is comprised of a devoted group of individuals looking to bring more productions to the region. Utilizing state tax incentives, initiating local crew training programs, assisting with permits, and connecting filmmakers with local businesses are just a few examples of how the Syracuse Film Office is ensuring productions succeed in Syracuse. Having worked on dozens of films and more in development for 2020, the Syracuse Film Office is constantly striving to make the Syracuse area a staple in the entertainment and film industry.
New York's $420 million film incentive program is one of the best in the nation. The New York State Governor's Office of Motion Picture & Television Development offers film, television and commercial production and post-production tax credits for qualified expenditures in New York State.
The Central New York region also offers an additional local incentive through the CNY Film Fund and The Innovation Group of CNY Arts.
