Montana Economic Development Industry Advancement (MEDIA) Act

During the 2019 Legislature, lawmakers passed, and Governor Bullock signed House Bill 293 to establish the Montana Economic Development Industry Advancement (MEDIA) Act, which is effective July 1, 2019.

With the MEDIA Act, Montana has a new tool to help get Montana stories told in Montana — and to help get the economic impact as well. Film is a powerful tool for promoting Montana.

Filming movies, TV shows and commercials in Montana elevates the awareness about our state and pumps outside dollars into our stores, hotels, and to 600 or more industry professionals.

The MEDIA Act provides for a 20 percent production expenditure tax credit, with additional components that can increase the transferable credit to a maximum of 35 percent of total base film production investment. Those add-on incentives can include:

• 25% of compensation for Montana resident crews
• 15% of compensation for non-Montana resident crew
• 30% of compensation paid to students
• 20% of above the line compensation per production or television series season, with ceiling
• 15% of compensation paid to actors
• 10% of payments to Montana colleges or universities
• 10% of all in-studio facility and equipment rental expenditures
• 5% of expenditures in a high poverty county
• 25% of post-production wages (Not effective until 2021)
• 5% for Montana screen credit

This incentive will allow us to better compete with other states and countries.
