Film Incentives

As part of TNECD, the Tennessee Entertainment Commission (TEC) incentives are designed to capitalize on Tennessee’s current entertainment assets and explores opportunities for the industry’s expansion and job creation. 

Effective July 1, 2012, projects with budgets over $200,000 will be eligible to receive grants equal to 25 percent of their qualified Tennessee expenditures. Previously, the combined grant and tax credit system awarded a 17 percent grant and 15 percent refundable tax credit only to productions with budgets over $1 million.
