Additional Information from the Film Commission
The Film Division of the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism is the primary contact for statewide film, television, and digital media production.
The Film Division offers three aggressive tax credit incentives programs for production, infrastructure and digital animation. These work concurrently to make Connecticut one of the most budget-friendly states in the nation. Beyond our economic incentives, Connecticut offers 5,009 square miles of exceptionally versatile indoor and outdoor space. High energy cities bustle minutes away from peaceful suburbs, industrial sites function not far from scenic farmlands, and nearly 100 miles of coastline define Connecticut’s southern border.
The Film Division team is comprised of experienced film and television professionals who can assist in finding ideal locations, securing approvals and permissions, and getting you where you need to go, quickly. Connecticut’s on-line Locations Gallery and Production Resource Directory allow 24/7 access to resourcing an extensive library of locations, in addition to the best venues and services for your needs.
