Maine Film Office Announces Accomplishments and Looks Ahead at 2020

AUGUSTA, Maine – The recently submitted Maine Attraction Film Incentive Plan Annual Report from the Maine Film Office (MFO) illustrates that 2019 was a profitable year for Maine’s film industry and that production companies are drawn to the state in large part due to Maine’s film-friendly reputation.

In 2019, six productions applied for and received a Maine Media Production Certificate through the Maine Attraction Film Incentive Plan. The plan’s credit and reimbursements accounted for $160,229 paid to productions, while the anticipated amount of visual media production expenses generated in Maine will be more than $3,380,000.

"We have been fortunate to have made two movies in Maine — The Way We Get By and Beneath The Harvest Sky.” Maine is a very special state in that there are so many options for locations. Given its size, you can travel to northern Maine, southern Maine, all along the coast, and tell a number of different stories in totally unique worlds with each film having very distinctive looks. The abundance of locations combined with the incredible generosity of the people and communities, make filmmaking in Maine a pure joy. We would not be filmmakers today without the support from the people of Maine and we will be forever grateful."

- Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet, The Way We Get By and Beneath the Harvest Sky
