12 New York state-based productions earn 29 nominations; productions generated more than $398 million in spending & created 17,397 new hires in state
Empire State Development, President, CEO and Commissioner Howard Zemsky on Monday congratulated 12 New York-based productions that earned 29 nominations for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
The productions generated more than $398 million in spending and created approximately 17,397 new jobs across the state. All nominated productions participated in the New York State Film Tax Credit Program.
"The New York Film Tax Credit Program has produced a record-breaking economic impact this year, investing heavily in our economy and expanding the opportunity for high-quality, middle-class jobs across the state" Zemsky said. "I congratulate this year's Golden Globe nominees and I invite productions to come and take advantage of all that New York has to offer."
The New York State Film Tax Credit Program, launched in 2004, has incentivized billions of dollars in economic investment in the Empire State and continues to be the principle factor cited by productions when deciding to film and produce in New York. The 12 productions earning nominations generated more than an estimated $398 million in spending in the state and approximately 17,397 new hires in the state.
To date in 2017, 216 film and television projects have applied for the New York State Film Tax Credit Program, estimated to generate 220,815 new hires and $3.7 billion in new spending for New York state.
