poll shows strong bipartisan support for the Georgia film industry

79% of likely voters say the film and TV production industry has a positive impact on Georgia’s economy

Findings from a survey among likely Georgia voters and likely Republican Primary Georgia voters conducted by FGS Global in partnership with the Georgia Screen Entertainment Coalition (GSEC), shows strong bipartisan support for the Georgia film industry.

“These results reflect a rare issue on which Republicans and Democrats alike agree: Georgia’s film industry is pivotal to driving growth and fostering economic opportunities. In fact, 8 out of 10 likely voters believe its impact is felt in every corner of the state. The survey also demonstrates overwhelming bipartisan support for and awareness of the film tax incentive, including its critical role in creating jobs, generating revenue and attracting tourism.” - Kelsey Moore, Executive Director of the Georgia Screen Entertainment Coalition

Key findings include:

  • Eight-in-ten (79%) likely voters say the film and TV production industry has a positive impact on Georgia’s economy, a sentiment shared by three quarters of likely GOP primary voters. Voters credit the industry with creating jobs, bringing in revenue, and attracting tourism. 

  • Set against the backdrop where two-thirds of likely voters believe Georgia’s economy is strong, three quarters (76%) of voters see the industry as essential to the statewide economy. 

  • The film tax incentive is both known and popular, with two-thirds of likely voters and Republican primary voters backing the credit.

  • With local jobs seen as the top benefit of the industry’s presence in the state, eight in ten (82%) fear loss of jobs if the film tax incentive is changed or limited.

  • With 70% of likely voters seeing the industry benefiting all corners of Georgia, 8 in 10 (78%) voters fear Georgia’s business losing out on revenues if the tax credit and incentive is changed or limited.
