Re June 3 article Miami filming hobbled by lack of tax credits: Florida had a blockbuster film industry before Rick Scott became governor. I predict our film industry will flourish once again when his administration finally fades to black and the credits roll. Charlie Crist understands the value of restoring the Florida Film Tax Incentives and will do so. It is vital that those municipalities and organizations that benefit the most, should also provide support to the film industry.

Miami Dade College, the cities of Miami and Miami Beach, Greater Miami Convention and Visitor Bureau, CAMACOL, Community Reinvestment Act, chambers of commerce and hotel and restaurant associations must also be responsible in finding ways to help invite and welcome the film industry here.
