Production Incentives (SSAI)

With a 7.5% incentive (caps apply) for feature film projects with at least $250k of approved Texas spending, San Antonio has the strongest local film incentive in the state. Combine this with a 22.5%* cash grant based on in-state spending from the Texas Film Commission, fantastic people, history, climate, diverse locations, and the existing Sales Tax Exemptions for qualifying purchases – and shooting in San Antonio is smarter than ever.

*Includes an underutilized area bonus of 2.5% for San Antonio

To learn more about the Supplemental San Antonio Incentive (SSAI), read the SSAI guidelines and contact the San Antonio Film Commission at (210) 207-6777.
