The meeting was facilitated by VisitColumbusGA and the Columbus Film Commission. “So much in film and entertainment has happened already in 2022,” said Joel Slocumb, Film Commissioner for the Columbus Film Commission. “The insight from Chrissie about the the key role and transferability of tax credits was well received by attendees. Terrell’s discussion of trends and his perspective on filming in Georgia was equally enlightening.”
