Greater Palm Springs Launches Production Incentive Program (EXCLUSIVE)

The Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau has launched a production incentive program with $100,000 in annual incentive funding.

The program, launched through the bureau’s Film Oasis operation, is available for features, scripted and unscripted television, commercials and still photography shoots. In order to qualify for funds, a production must spend a minimum of $25,000 in permits, lodging and meals in the Coachella Valley.

“Greater Palm Springs is an area steeped in Hollywood history,” said Scott White, the bureau’s president and CEO. “The scenic beauty of our destination has long-served as the backdrop for motion picture and television filming. However, with our exciting new incentives program, we are set to position Greater Palm Springs as a leading film production destination, bringing increased exposure and income to our nine cities.”

The program was unveiled Wednesday in conjunction with the opening of the American Film Market.

Film Oasis provides assistance to production companies seeking to shoot on location in the Greater Palm Springs area and works with nine resort cities, Riverside County Film Commission, Film in Palm Springs and government and tribal agencies.

The announcement noted that Visit Santa Barbara has already launched a similar program offering production incentive funds for unscripted TV, commercials and still photography shoots.
