Film and Television Production (Support)

HB 341 (Silvers) establishes the Florida Motion Picture Capital Corporation (FMPCC) to encourage the use of the state as a site for movies and television shows. The corporation would provide financing to productions that are estimated to generate the greatest economic impact to the state. The FMPCC would be funded by a combination of federal, state and local dollars and would be governed by a board of directors serving three-year terms. The bill contains several accountability measures relating to the use of these funds for film and television production. (Cook)
