Our growing membership provides a network, a platform and the chance to play an active part in solidifying Florida’s position as a major production destination.
Members are an active part of shaping the future of Florida’s film industry through Film Florida’s legislative involvement. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, we’re in the game making positive change.
Members help maintain and build Florida’s infrastructure to strengthen film production in Florida. We want to bring more jobs, and more business into our community.
Members react to and shape the issues that have an effect on the growth of our infrastructure, for example starting the licensure of hair and make-up artists, deregulation of talent agencies and starting a task force to address the cost of production insurance during hurricane season.
Members get to market Florida through group involvement by participat-ing in Film Florida sponsored sales missions at tradeshows in New York, Las Vegas, London and at film festivals including SXSW, Sundance and more.
Members meet new business associates and becoming familiar with members by taking advantage of the many networking opportunities that Film Florida offers.
