Governor Roy Cooper announced the creation of the Governor’s Advisory Council on Film, Television and Digital Streaming, which will lead efforts to continue growing North Carolina’s successful film industry.
“North Carolina’s natural beauty, welcoming communities, and local talent make it a perfect home for the film industry,” said Governor Cooper. “This advisory council will play a critical role in helping the industry flourish, which creates good-paying jobs right here in North Carolina.” 
“North Carolina’s bourgeoning film industry already has created many jobs and expanded opportunities for companies to invest in our state,” said Department of Natural and Cultural Resources Secretary and Council Chair Susi Hamilton. “Gov. Cooper’s decision to create this council will greatly aid efforts to expand this industry and help North Carolina continue to prosper.” 
Governor Cooper has recommended both a grant program and a tax incentive to promote the film industry, with efforts targeting both small and large productions. In his 2019 budget, Governor Cooper sought to modernize the film grant program by dropping minimum spend requirements for feature-length films and raising per projects caps for films and TV series.
