Initial application windows for California’s Film & TV Tax Credit Program 3.0 will be June 22-24 for Recurring and Relocating TV series and July 13-15 for Feature Films (independent and non-independent).

Credit Allocation Letter Dates will be July 20 for Recurring and Relocating TV series and August 17 for Feature Films.

The California Film Commission will not accept any New Television projects during the TV application period, as the recurring TV category is oversubscribed.  Recurring TV series will receive credit allocation letters upon submission of pick-up orders.

The above schedule is subject to change due to COVID-19 and approval of Program 3.0 regulations by the Office of Administrative Law.


The Spanish Government approved an increase in tax incentives to attract international productions. The refund percentage increases from 20% to 30% for the first million euros, and to 25% for the remaining expenses incurred in Spain. The increase also raises the maximum refund limit to €10M.
