About the Film & Television Study:
The film and television industry have a long-standing history and economic stake in New York City. In an effort to further cultivate the industry’s growth in the city, The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) commissioned a study of the policies and programs that support the industry. As part of a team led by BuroHappold Cities, Public Works Partners is working to define and assess the film and TV industry in New York City by conducting comprehensive reviews of precedent reports and interviewing sector stakeholders who can speak to the industry’s current state, challenges and opportunities, and the evolving nature of the industry.
