MANATEE COUNTY {Bradenton Area}

Incentives are available to companies with projects up to a Motion Picture Association of America rating of “R” and include cash or in-kind services beginning with any production expected to spend more than $250,000. The calculation for cash incentives are based on the approximate value of the project, including the number of days a production company would be using local hotels. The incentive would only be paid after the project is completed and will not be used as an upfront expense to the county. In-kind incentives include free filming at such facilities and amenities as beaches, parks, Port Manatee and area hospitals and the use of some county equipment and personnel. The project must be a feature film or television pilot or series and 90 percent of the production must be filmed within the county. For more visit
