The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Ats & Culture announced the Tulsa County Film Recovery Program on Friday.
Officials said the $90,000 program was funded through the Tulsa County CARES Act.
The program focuses helping the economy through “film production, mitigating COVID-19 risk on-set, and providing education opportunities for film crew to return to work safely.”
“Prior to the pandemic, the Tulsa film industry was skyrocketing. It grew from 11 film productions in 2017 to 32 in 2019 - a whopping 190% increase over a two-year period! These 32 productions pumped money into the Tulsa economy and resulted in more than 3,000 hotel room nights.” said Wendy Drummond, chair of Tulsa FMAC. “We’re extremely grateful Tulsa County Commissioners granted use of these funds focused on the film industry.”
Officials said the Tulsa County Film Recovery Program is available to production companies on a first-come, first-served basis.
