Colorado Film, TV and Media Metrics

  • The Film Office has paid $16.1Min incentives to 63 projects from FY2013-FY2018, 38 projects received under $100,000

  • These 63 projects generated $111.2M in production activity

  • The Office has negotiated incentives below the maximum 20% rate, an effective rate of 16% in 2013-16 and 9% in 2017

  • Feature Films/Docs and TV series only represent about 2/3 of incentivized projects; videogames, commercials, and one-off programs account for the remainder

  • From 2012-2016, Colorado's film production-related employment increased by 43% (865 new jobs), which is more than double the total US growth rate (19%)

Colorado's film industry still receives a much lower incentive than other states in the region.
