Last week the Metro Detroit Film Incentive Town Hall had an incredible turnout! More than 230 film, TV, and commercial professionals joined us at Studio Center in Farmington Hills to hear about the film incentive bills working through the Michigan legislature.

It's clear - the public wants these bills turned into law. Please take action by sending emails to legislators to help make this happen.


We talked about several important topics at last week's Town Hall event: 

  1. How the new incentive will work
  2. The status of the bills (they are in committees in the House and Senate)
  3. What Michiganders can do to help get the bills passed (contact legislators here)
  4. We need your financial support to continue this momentum (donate here)

People near Traverse City and Grand Rapids will be attending town halls in May. Please register below.

It's important to attend because we need everyone to help get this incentive passed. Also, RSVP and share the Facebook event to help spread the word.

Traverse City - Monday, May 9, 6:00 to 7:30 PM EDT

Workshop Brewing Company • Traverse City, MI

REGISTER • Traverse City
Also RSVP on Facbook

Grand Rapids - Wednesday, May 11, 6:00 to 8:00 PM EDT

Lowing Studios • Grand Rapids, MI

We also encourage you to invite a small business owner who has benefitted from supporting productions in the past to join you at a Town Hall event. Let's show legislators the broad support our industry provides for all kinds of businesses like hotels & travel, restaurants & caterers, lumber yards & hardware stores, florists & bakers, etc. A personal call or text goes a long way with an invitation, or you may share this email.

Thanks again to Diane Stratton for organizing the Metro Detroit event. Bill Latka is organizing Traverse City, and Lindsey Katerberg is organizing Grand Rapids.

Please register today to let me know you're coming and let’s work together to improve both Michigan's economy and our livelihoods!

Let's do this!
