It’s not just "Bad Boys" that had Miami Beach front and center. For years, the film industry has put Miami on the map and then a pandemic hit. A new program is trying to help production projects that are in the works in Miami Beach.
Director of Tourism and Culture, Lissette Garcia Arrogante spoke to NBC 6 about the new grant.
“Film and Print industry has been hardly hit, just to give you an example, from when the shutdown happened in March to mid-April, we approximately lost $4.3 million and over 500 jobs alone,” said Arrogante.
The city has now rolled out the Film and Print Covid-19 Relief Grant.
“It's a one-time, up to $10,000 reimbursement towards the cost that they've incurred to make sure that they followed Covid-19 safety and sanitation guidelines,” said Arrogante.
The production must have had a permit between June 8th and December 20, 2020. The reimbursement can be for anything from PPE to extra sanitizing.
