For productions on Hawai‘i Island
Includes: ATL, POST, VFX, & NON-RESIDENTS
The State of Hawai‘i offers a 25% tax credit to qualified productions on Hawai‘i Island. That is 5% MORE than what you will get on Oahu! Hawai‘i’s Film incentive program is generous and easy to access, and provides more than you can get from other locations around the world.
The Sate of Hawai‘i tax credit includes above-the-line and non-residents with a minimum spend of $200,000 and a maximum per production credit cap of $15,000,000!
With our advanced connectivity through private fiber, it is time to rethink Hawai‘i Island for your post production needs. The tax credit applies to post, vfx, and allows productions to utilize our remote collaboration tools!
The State Film Office administers the incentives.
The unique GVS Accelerator/Development partnership fund is available now for content produced in Hawai‘i!
THE GVS ACCELERATOR
Fast track your development through the Kona based GVS Accelerator! Launched in April of 2014, the GVS Transmedia Accelerator Program is a public-private initiative between GVS, the Hawai‘i Strategic Development Corporation/ HI Growth Initiative, the County of Hawai‘i and the GTA Development Fund. Companies accepted into the Accelerator will receive $50k for development with access to a world class team of coaches and mentors who offer everything from script doctoring and pitch packages, to budgeting and scheduling. Graduates from the accelerator have access to up to $250k that can be applied toward their production!
The Program also facilitates workshops, seminars and showcase events – engaging with broader the entertainment and innovation community. The Accelerator facility at Honua Studios is also the site of the GVS Co-Work Space, a mosh pit of creativity where startups, individual creatives and established entertainment companies work side by side – and let the sparks fly!
The GVS Accelerator has been named one of the 50 most innovative accelerators in the U.S. by the Small Business Administration & is a recipient of the SBA’s Accelerator Growth Competition Award.
