Colorado Film, TV and Media Metrics

  • The Film Office has paid $14.0M in incentives to 56 projects from FY2013-FY2017, 35 projects received under $100,000
  • These 56 projects generated $96.4M 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; commercials, videogames, 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 per worker than in New Mexico and Utah:
