ABOUT THE FILM OFFICE 
The New Mexico State Film Office serves the film and television industry locally, nationally and internationally. Our purpose is to market our state to the film industry, service productions and create lasting job opportunities for New Mexico residents. We offer many resources to producers, film crew and local filmmakers and work diligently to assist productions in finding potential filming locations. The Film Office consults with productions regarding the financial aspects and benefits of shooting their projects in New Mexico as well guiding them through the Refundable Film Production Tax Credit. We also connect productions with crew, vendor services and film liaisons throughout the state utilizing our website. In addition to promoting and providing production services, the film office is initiating emerging media opportunities for the state and working to expand industry infrastructure. The support of New Mexico filmmakers is a priority for this division, as is expanding the Statewide Film Liaison Network, developing the NM Film Tourism Initiative, and promoting Educational Outreach.
