Important! New Mexico Film/Media Survey

Its time again to help support the New Mexico State Film Incentive Program! This year, individuals and businesses that work in the film industry (or who's work support the film industry - ie, your company provides goods and/or services to the industry or other industry supporting businesses) are being asked to fill out a quick but very important survey that helps quantify the economic impact that the film industry has on the State and its residents. This includes actors, crew, restaurants, realtors -- anyone who derives income from the film industry.

The incentives are a highly critical part of why there is a film industry here in the State, and it is up to all of us to do our part to keep them here. If you are an individual or business who has (between 2002-present) worked in the film industry, worked in a business that supports the film industry, or in some other direct way received economic benefit from the film industry, it is critical that you speak up.

The New Mexico State Film Office, and the IATSE 480 have sent out an online survey, but there are those who may not be on either mailing list, and not received it. In order to receive the survey, please email us at, or call (866) 986-8884 and we'll make sure that you are added to the list of survey recipients. You are also encouraged to contact the State Film Office at, or (505) 476-5600 if you have any questions. Once you receive the survey, please fill it out immediately. It takes less than 5 minutes.

This is very important, so please do not delay!

Thank you.
