KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Leaders of Missouri’s film production industry say moves to cut government subsidies might close the curtains on a successful, money-generating business. Gov. Jay Nixon has recommended dropping funding for the Missouri Film Office, which helps coordinate filming for out-of-state producers and Missouri locations, filmmakers and local residents. A government commission also has recommended that a $4.5 million film production tax credit be eliminated. Jerry Jones, who heads the Missouri Film Office, says the incentives are crucial to bringing films to Missouri- which brings jobs and revenue. But Nixon and the commission say the incentives do not bring enough positive returns to the state.
