» BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

We are at the 11th Hour. There is a legislative effort to cut the Michigan Film Incentive.

The Incentives are working! Beyond our wildest expectations! But some legislators are trying to kill the MFI.

Monday, Oct 26: join supporters & members of Michigan’s film industry to preserve the Film Incentives: 7 PM, Crofoot Ballroom, 1 S. Saginaw, Pontiac

-- Learn the three things you can do to save the MFI -- right away, from your desk.

-- Get assignments to contact the legislators who would Kill Michigan’s Film Future.

-- Hear the long term positions of the announced candidates for Governor.

-- Network with other filmmakers. Help build a new industry here in Michigan.

One of the most successful efforts to re-build the economy is in danger of terminal legislative “flip flop”. Film industry producers are sitting on their wallets watching and waiting to get a clear sign if Michigan is really going to roll back its promise and kill this new industry.

Mike Manasseri of BigScreenMichigan.com “ The highly successful Michigan Film Tax Incentive is in danger of being reduced, capped, or altered in a way that would destroy the momentum that has been generated over the past 18 months in the Michigan motion picture, television, and video game industry. We need all Michigan filmmakers, supporters, artists and crew to step forward and speak up.”

Dan McGowan of TheCrofoot.com “We need to focus our cameras right on the legislators who are destroying Michigan’s credibility by flip flopping on film incentives. . . .”

Join supporters and members of Michigan’s film industry as they rally to preserve the Film Incentives. This Rally and effort is being coordinated and sponsored by a growing coalition.
