Film Cincinnati


We're on a mission:


Film Cincinnati is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to attracting, promoting and cultivating film, television and commercial production throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

Since its beginning in 1987, Film Cincinnati has brought hundreds of films to Greater Cincinnati, plus thousands of commercials, music videos, documentaries and industrials. Once filmmakers choose Greater Cincinnati, Film Cincinnati helps them overcome production challenges. We involve filmmakers in our community by connecting them with local production crews and creative talent. We also facilitate permits, street closings, police, fire safety and any public or private location logistics.

The Ohio Tax Incentive


The Ohio Tax Incentive


30% ABOVE AND BELOW THE LINE,
no cap per project:


THIS IS OHIO, WE DON'T MESS AROUND. When it comes to state tax incentives we know filmmakers have choices.

That's why in 2010 we camped out at the state capitol to ensure the legislation was not only attractive to filmmakers but also backed by bipartisan support to ensure its sustainability and long-term success. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit provides a refundable tax credit that equals 30% off on eligible productions.
