And By The Way, Arizona Filmmakers

Friends of Film in Arizona –

Last month the new Arizona Motion Picture Tax Incentive bill, SB1409, passed a Senate Commerce Committee hearing 7 to 1. Next week will be the real test. SB1409 moves to the Senate Floor where it will be voted on. If the bill doesn’t pass, Arizona has absolutely no chance of competing with New Mexico, Louisiana, Georgia or any of the other states with wildly successful film incentive programs (for evidence see articles below).

To insure that the bill passes, we need you to contact your Senators no later than Tuesday, March 9th. Ask them to support SB1409, and tell them why you, personally, believe there are economic benefits to having the film industry in our state.

You can find out who your Senator is here:

You can find their contact information here:

If you e-mail them, make sure your address is prominent as lawmakers will more likely read an email from someone in their district.

Onward and upward!

Shelli Hall
