FILM Tax credit lending: We are passionate about helping film and TV projects be as successful as possible through incentive lending and movie incentive programs (MIPs).

We provide support through film tax credit financing, resources, and ancillary services to help bring authentic projects to life — we believe in the power of your stories, and we believe in the power of you. We are also capable of television tax credit financing (for episodic television series, television pilots, and television movies & miniseries) and tax credit brokering.
TAX CREDIT ADVISORY SERVICES: HANDLING THE NITTY GRITTY WORLD OF INCENTIVES, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO.
Through our sister company Service Road, we can structure your film as a tax credit eligible production. Service Road tracks a production's qualified production expenditures and provides tax credit opinion letters, expenditure verification reports, and third party verifications (audits). Our goal is to maximize the value of your credit.
HISTORICAL TAX CREDIT LENDING: WE SEE REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS’ INSPIRATION THROUGH, FROM INCEPTION TO COMPLETION.
Forest Road is a lender in the historic rehabilitation tax credit space. We work with developers of historic real estate properties to provide cheap access to capital not otherwise available, that in most cases also counts as equity to support a construction loan from a bank. We also have deep knowledge of real estate opportunity zones, and can help you navigate these rewarding yet complex areas.
RENEWABLE energy lending: Doing good work with good people to make for stronger, healthier state and federal economies.
Forest Road is currently expanding its suite of renewable energy lending services. In partnering with renewable energy specialists to complete their projects, the company relies on its founding principles of taking on projects that will serve the communities in which they exist.
