Panel: New Opportunities and Incentives to Shoot Your Indie Movie in Latin America and New York State
7:30pm @ SVA THEATRE
This dialogue aims to offer options, tips, and accurate information about opportunities to shoot a low-to-medium budget film in locations such as Colombia, Cuba and New York State. In Colombia, the government provides soft money in the form of tax subsidies or cash rebates; in New York, the State Film Commission offers tax incentives; and in Cuba, now that diplomatic relations with the U.S. are being re-established, options to shoot in the Island might emerge.
