Tourism & Film
Mississippi is known for its abundant hospitality, natural beauty and unique locations, whether you’re coming for business or pleasure.
Mississippi is the birthplace of America’s music, home to a wealth of historical and cultural sites, and host to incredible events and attractions. Mississippi is also a great place for culinary travelers, too, with destination dining cuisine ranging from down home cooking to award-winning fine dining.
The Mississippi Tourism Rebate Program
Mississippi tourism is constantly changing and evolving, with new events and attractions. The Mississippi Tourism Rebate Program helps stimulate the development and success of such opportunities by providing a tax rebate to qualified applicants of new tourism-oriented projects within the state of Mississippi.
Local economies throughout Mississippi benefit from the economic impact of film productions. The Mississippi Motion Picture Incentive Program was established in 2014 to encourage the growth and expansion of the state’s production-related economy. The program provides a cash rebate for eligible expenditures to qualified productions filming in the state.
