Illinois, home of the Windy City, offers multiple inducements for film, TV and live theater.
The state boasts a deep crew base, thriving acting community, numerous industry vendors and 20 major soundstages.
Most impressive, however, is Illinois’ 30%-45% transferable tax credit program for qualifying producers who choose to film there.
It has at least seven more years to run, providing the kind of stability that filmmakers crave.
