Indiana will begin offering a new Film and Media Tax Credit for television, film, music or digital media productions, and the application period has been extended from the end of October to the end of this year. The tax credit was approved in the 2022 legislative session. “Creativity is an essential ingredient to the vibrancy of any community, and this new tool will encourage artists to do their work here in the Hoosier state,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers. “By attracting media companies and their service businesses to Indiana, and by extension, continuing to diversify Indiana’s economic portfolio, it is my hope that we are enabling more of our talented young people to pursue careers that align with their passion, without having to leave home,” Chambers said. Filmmaker Angelo Pizzo, who wrote “Hoosiers” and “Rudy”, says he’s been “advocating for an incentive like this for many years”. The online applications became available in early August, and state officials say eligible media producers are encouraged to apply online beginning through December 31st, 2022.
