Entertainment Production Incentives
The Savannah Economic Development Authority offers the Savannah Entertainment Production Incentives. The local incentives combined with Georgia’s already existing incentives, are helping build a sustainable production industry by increasing the number of qualified crew members living and working in the area and increasing the number of film and television productions in Chatham County.
The Savannah Entertainment Production Incentives includes two distinct incentives:
- Cash rebates for feature films and television series for qualified productions.
- Bonus Incentive: A $25,000 bonus will be awarded to productions that qualify for the Savannah Entertainment Production Incentive AND hire 50% or more local crew (within 60 miles of the City Hall of Savannah).
