Production Initiatives Association

The Production Initiatives Association (PIA) advocates for businesses and stakeholders in New York State's film, television, and commercial production industry via enduring and focused lobbying efforts for a competitive tax incentive. We deeply believe we have a responsibility as leaders and citizens to our communities, city and state to harness the capabilities of our trade to seek social and environmental justice, fortify local social organizations and prepare for future unforeseeable calamitous events. PIA invites all members to lend their voices, experience and network to shape the future of the industry, employ cultural shifts and step in when society needs us and further galvanize New York’s position as the most progressive and vital film association in the world.
