Members of the Savannah Economic Development Authority board have approved revisions and a renewal for incentives to attract film and television productions.
In the last two years, incentives paid out totaled just over $1.1 million, Brynn Grant, Chief Operating Officer of SEDA said. The numbers from 2018 aren’t yet available. The payoff from productions in economic impact to date in 2018 totaled $233 million. The overall impact since 2016 is nearly $600 million.
Those numbers show the incentives are working, Grant said.
