Fewer films made in Mass.
But officials say 2011 numbers are better
Massachusetts gave fewer tax breaks to movie companies last year, largely due to the declining number of feature films being made here, according to a new report from the state’s Department of Revenue. In 2010, about $14.6 million in state tax credits were granted to 83 different productions - an 82 percent drop from the $83.3 million in credits granted in 2009. The main reason: Only six feature films were shot here last year, down from 13 in 2009.
