The New Mexico State Film Office (NMFO) provides training and resources for New Mexico residents pursuing careers in the film and television industry. If you are new to the industry, please review our frequently asked questions.
Through the Economic Development Department Job Training Incentives Program (JTIP) for film and multimedia, the NMFO supports economic development in New Mexico by providing training opportunities to New Mexico below-the-line crew.
Implemented in 2004, this on-the-job training program
focuses on NM residents working in primarily technical industry
positions. This program serves as an incentive for participating
companies to provide more job opportunities to New Mexicans. The
program provides a 50% reimbursement of the qualified participants’
wages to the participating companies for up to 1040 hours physically
worked by the crew member. Companies are approved by the Chair of the
FCAP applications must be submitted at least 30 days before principal photography begins.
Production companies interested in participating in FCAP CLICK HERE for program guidelines.
Implemented in 2006, the intention of PETP is to provide
reimbursement funds to qualified contractors who facilitate short-terms
intensive workshops or lectures relating to below-the-line film and
television craft departments. Contractors are approved by the Chair of
the JTIP Board.
