Since the Film & Television Incentive became law in 2006, over 230 productions have filmed in over 220 cities and towns, together spending more than $2.4 billion in Massachusetts.

Large productions by major Hollywood studios and multi-year episodic television series employ more local workers, use more local businesses, and are the engine of growth for the industry in Massachusetts. Because they keep coming back, they have established a significant footprint here and solid working relationships with hundreds of local film and television professionals and thousands of local businesses.

The film tax credit has made Massachusetts a leading film-making destination, supporting thousands of local families and creating a local industry that helps countless small businesses in cities and towns all across this state.


Alex Berard, Location Scout & Manager (Uxbridge, MA)

I have scouted locations for film and television productions all over Massachusetts. Two films I recently worked on were based in Fall River and Worcester, and those along with many surrounding towns were used as shooting locations for the films. The first season of the Hulu series “Castle Rock” was based in Devens and shot in 19 cities and towns across the state, many of them in central Massachusetts. The production spent hundreds of thousands of dollars transforming Orange into the title town of “Castle Rock” benefiting the town, the residents, and area businesses enormously.
