The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture (Tulsa FMAC) created the Tulsa County Film Recovery Program (“Film Tulsa Fund”) to focus on the goal of driving an economic boost through film production and providing education to Tulsa County’s film industry while growing the workforce. This program addresses the negative economic impact on Tulsa’s film industry caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposal was passed by the Tulsa County Commissioners for allocation of Tulsa County American Rescue Act funding in December 2021 and goes into effect March 2022 with $600,000 available funding for productions meeting specific criteria. The Film Tulsa Fund is administered by Tulsa FMAC, a division of Tulsa Regional Tourism which is housed at the Tulsa Regional Chamber. The Film Tulsa Fund is available for productions filming in and around Tulsa County from March-December 2022. Productions that apply for the Film Tulsa Fund will be eligible for 3% of their total Tulsa County spend (Minimum spend in Tulsa County must be $50,000). Maximum cash rebate to not exceed $150,000 per production.
