Why do we need a Governor’s Office of Film and Media to attract and facilitate film, television and commercial production?

Here are 10 Reasons:

  1. Tells a 175 billion dollar Industry that Arizona is "Open for Business"  []
  2. Brings more high wage jobs for an existing workforce
  3. Spreads Economic Impact in urban and rural communities across the state
  4. Brings new Tax Revenues
  5. Small, local businesses benefit
  6. Tourism increases
  7. Offers training and networking opportunities for Media students at state schools
  8. Film + TV production business is both clean and recession proof
  9. The Industry is our neighbor and wants to be here
  10. Helps to revive Arizona’s film legacy

Help us be successful in re-establishing our state’s film office this year.
