Support Locally Owned Business - And The Film Industry!

As an independently owned business, we know the importance of creating strategic alliances that help benefit our community, and that's why we're a huge fan of the Santa Fe Alliance. We've never encountered a more dynamic and creative group that works for the strengthening of our economy through networking, embracing new methods of business, and helping keep people aware of the power of spending dollars locally.

Anyone who has ever worked with film professionals or a production shooting in town can attest to the economic benefits that production business can bring to a small business. One client can make a whole month, one production can make a whole year.

One of the benefits of the New Mexico film incentive program is that it rewards out-of-state productions for shopping locally - with a 25% cash rebate. We don't want all those goods and services coming in from California - we want them to be sourced locally.

And that's why exists. Our directory helps bridge the gap between productions/film professionals and locally owned businesses and providers of goods and services.

To help give Santa Fe owned businesses a big boost in visibility to the film industry, we've arranged a special 50% discount for members of the Santa Fe Alliance to list on at small-biz friendly rates. Now through August 15, any member of the Alliance can list on starting at just $39/year. You'll receive your very own movie webpage with all of your business information!

To take advantage, simply enter SFA50 in the promotional code line during online registration, or contact directly at (505) 930-0443.

$39 accounts show up in the lower tier of search results. You may also upgrade to a Premium Account ($25 additional) which appears the top tier of search results, in a unique, bold, text box. To see the difference, click here! Both accounts include being listed in one skill or service. To list in additional skills/services, the cost is $12.50/skill. Offer expires August 15th, 2010. You must be a current member of the Santa Fe Business Alliance to qualify.
