Florida Lawmakers Need To Bring Back Hollywood

Tampa’s Bay News 9 reports:

Hollywood producers have been scouting the streets of Ybor City for an upcoming Ben Affleck film called “Live By Night.” Filmmakers for a second major motion picture called “The Infiltrator” are clamoring to shoot in Tampa, too.

But the Bay area may lose out on the opportunity.

“There are no more tax credits,” said Dale Gordon, head of Tampa/Hillsborough’s Film and Digital Media Commission. “So these projects are not able to commit to coming to our market until they have some sense of security over whether our tax credit program is going to be refunded.”
