***IMPORTANT*** New Mexico updated and expanded its incentive program during its recent legislative session. MANY OF THESE NEW ELEMENTS TAKE EFFECT JULY 01, 2019. The program descriptions and flow charts on this site apply to productions that commenced prior to July 01; we are retaining this information for the next few weeks to service those productions and to assist in the transition period. This site will be updated over the coming weeks to reflect the new incentive program.
If you wish to review the legislation as passed and signed by the Governor this past session, you can find it here.
Again, the descriptions and flowcharts on this site still apply to productions that commenced prior to 07/01/2019. Productions that commence on or after 07/01/2019 are subject to the new (and in some cases enhanced) incentives. Any questions or clarifications should be directed to the New Mexico State Film Office at 505.476.5600 or www.nmfilm.com
