  • Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI)

    Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI)

    FOUNDED IN 1975, Association of Film Commissioners International
    (AFCI) is the only global non-profit professional organization
    representing city, state, regional, provincial and national film
    commission members on six continents.Driving Economic Growth

    The film, television and new media industry generates economic
    growth through the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually on
    production, post-production and VFX work and creation of thousands of
    middle class, below-the-line jobs. A tentpole feature film can spend
    well over $250,000 per day in a local economy and a large national or
    international television commercial can generate local spending of up to
    $1 million in less than two weeks. The economic impact generated by
    productions positively impacts local hotels, car and truck rental,
    catering, barricade rentals, local cast and crew, and a host of other
    local businesses. Moreover, film production can help generate sustained
    growth in tourism.A Valuable Partner / Why Work With A Commission

    Film Commissions are valuable partners in the process, often
    acting as the quasi production office before a production sets up shop.
    The presence of a Commission, its level of development and resources
    offered can be a determining factor in whether production companies will
    consider bringing production to a particular region. In today’s highly
    competitive environment Film Commissions are becoming both an economic
    necessity – an integral ingredient in attracting the industry and its
    ensuing revenue to a region.

    AFCI Member Film Commissions can offer production companies a
    complete range of pre-production services through a central contact
    point. Our members provide accurate and timely information regarding
    local crew depth, stage facilities and other infrastructure, location
    suggestions (assisting with site location photography, regional scouting
    services, bespoke location presentations), film procedures, permits,
    and guidelines. They can also serve as a liaison between governmental
    departments and agencies, facilitating connections with local
    communities and arrangements for filming on public property.
