Fred Siegel is a veteran indie film, tax, and business consultant and founder of Fred Siegel, Cpa (NYC), specializing in key tax and business issues for producers and dealing with the business of film.  Serving as an adviser, “guide,” and collaborator on the business side of film, Fred has worked with indie film producers and their development and production companies and film financiers since the early 1990’s, working with acclaimed filmmakers such as Christine Vachon (Killer Films – “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Still Alice”), and many others, as well as filmmakers in the earlier stages of their careers.  

The firm provides a comprehensive set of services covering Consulting, Financing, Film Tax Credits, Taxation, and Accounting throughout the life of a film, helping filmmakers plan and operate their productions, from development, financing, and deal structure through production, post, and distribution.

Earlier in his professional life, Fred was a jazz musician and an entrepreneur –  those experiences infuse Fred’s professional work today with an independent spirit and artistic bent and an appreciation and understanding of the life of an artist/producer, the world of business, and the interplay between the two.  Fred  is a graduate of Columbia University (B.A. Economics, Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude),  attended the NYU Graduate School of Business (taxation; accounting), and previously worked at Coopers & Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers) and a smaller NYC firm focused on the entertainment industry.
