Marriott Hotels Offer Michigan Film Tax Credit Resource With a New Website Dedicated to Michigan Film Production

www.4FilmMI.com provides an introduction to Marriott hotels for film production in Michigan

DETROIT, MICHIGAN--(Marketwire - Aug. 19, 2008) - The recently introduced Michigan film tax credit is one of the most advantageous tax incentives available for film production companies. Sweetening the deal, Marriott hotels have launched a new site-4FilmMI.com-outlining special offers, providing tax incentive information, and introducing film companies to the wide variety of Michigan Marriott hotels.

Introduced in April 2008, the Michigan film tax credits offer 40% cash rebates, with an additional 2% added for filming in one of the 103 core communities. On the heels of this excellent film tax incentive, Marriott hotels created 4FilmMI.com to serve as a resource and highlight special offers for Michigan film production, including discounted room and suite rates, production office space, and food & beverage discounts.

In addition to information about the film tax credit, 4FilmMi.com features locator maps identifying Michigan Marriott hotels by region (streamlining the accommodations process) and provides information about the 8 different Marriott brands available in the state with 11,000 guest rooms across 84 hotels ranging from luxury resorts to extended-stay accommodations.

The site features general information about Michigan film production, noting that the state offers a range of flexible settings including quaint downtown main streets, art-deco skyscrapers, gritty warehouses, open spaces for countryside or heartland, historic landmarks, chic suburban downtowns and stunning riverfronts and lakes. Additionally, 4FilmMI.com offers direct access to the Michigan film tax incentive application forms.
