FILM COMMISSIONS: The Indie Producer's Secret Weapon

Save Time & Money by Tapping into State & Local Film Offices  

 

Savvy filmmakers understand that film commissions provide valuable assistance – from production planning, locations and permits to incentives and problem-solving. Yet many people in the industry don’t have a clue what film commissions do. This panel of experts will explain how to effectively work with the California Film Commission as well as the 58 local film offices statewide that are ready and eager to help. You’ll also learn about community outreach and the innovative methods being utilized to avoid problems and keep the peace when filming on location. If you’re a California filmmaker, this panel discussion is a must!
