If you were able to join us on June 14, 2017 for the “Demystifying Tax Credits” Seminar, you were given an overview of exactly what these credits are, how they are used and how to qualify.

We know that:

If you were left thinking “Yes, but how do I apply?”, this workshop is for you!

Please join us on Tuesday, Sept. 19, as we take you step-by-step through the entire process – from how to register with the State, through filing for the appropriate tax credit, to ways to finance your film through the tax credits.

It’s free of charge, but space is limited.   Sign up now !

On hand again will be Wendy Riseborough, a Producer and Project Manager for Independent filmmakers who has applied for and received tax credits over 20 times in her career. Wendy has seen it all and lucky for us is willing to share her stories of success and challenges along the way.
