Area Entertainment

Summary


On March 11, 2005, the Manitoba Government announced that Manitoba Film and Sound Recording Development Corporation's base tax credit will rise from 35% to 45% of eligible Manitoba wages and salaries (or 22.5% of the total eligible production costs of an eligible film if that amount is less).  This increase is in addition to the 5% frequent filming bonus for the third project shot within a two-year period in Manitoba and a 5% Rural/Northern bonus introduced last year.  Combined, these incentives allow an eligible company to garner up to a 55% rebate on Manitoba labour expenditures.  The new 45% tax credit will apply to productions for which principal photography commenced after March 8, 2005.
