50 Years of NYC Film Magic

50 Years of NYC Film Magic


Jul 08, 2016 Marisa Ray

To celebrate MOME’s 50th anniversary, there will be fifty free events held throughout the year, showcasing NYC’s film industry. MOME is a division of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. The agency works to market NYC as a prime location for production, and to stimulate growth in NYs entertainment industry.

To celebrate their 50th anniversary, MOME has decided to host 50 free events throughout this year in commemoration of films primarily filmed in New York City. All events are open to the public giving film fans an inside look at the New York City entertainment industry. The fifty free events will be held across the five boroughs, and include movie and Broadway tickets.

In the 1960s, filming in New York was an extremely difficult task, involving over fifty permits per day to shoot. In 1966 Mayor Lindsay replaced the rule by requiring just one permit for city owned locations. New York’s production increased one hundred percent and earned the city over 20 million that year alone.

Fifty years later, NYC’s entertainment industry is thriving! The industry has contributed over 9 billion dollars to the city’s economy, and ranks as one of the world’s largest production centers.

MOME kicked off the yearlong event on June 8th with special guests Alicia Keys, and Robert de Niro hoping to promote the artists and entertainers who represent the cultural identity of New York.

Events and further information can be found on their website:
