Kansas City Film Production needs your help NOW! The Film Office & Incentive Program are scheduled to be removed from Mayor Quinton Lucas’ 20/21 budget proposal. The program costs the city very little to offer a program which brings in an annual cash flow of $10 million in revenue. We have until March 15th to collect 5,000 signatures (from anyone in support of this movement regardless of where they live) and get this program reinstated into the budget.

What is the film incentive and why is it important? The film incentive offers qualifying productions assistance if they spend a minimum amount of money in the city and hire local crews. These incentives help our city to bring large projects like Netflix’s Queer Eye Season 3 and 4. The total budget that would be cut is a mere $175,000 for the incentive and film office. This revenue helps bring in productions which have an impact of over $10 million in revenue to the city annually. These productions also showcase our city which has a direct link to an increase in tourism.  

This is not a partisan issue. This is about keeping great film projects in Kansas City which create jobs and boosts the economy.

Please help us by signing and sharing our petition showing Mayor Quinton Lucas and the City Council how important this is to so many and needs to be included in the 20/21 budget. To stay connected with the movement and or get more involved visit Keep KC Filming on Facebook:
