Film Friendly Texas (FFTX) Workshop
November 16, 2018 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
About the Event:
Through the Film Friendly training and certification process, statewide communities are prepared to meet the opportunities and challenges of accommodating media productions and are readied to help match local businesses with production-related needs and services.
On-location filming activity stimulates local economies by creating jobs for Texas-based crew members and local residents. On-location filming activity generates on-site spending on local goods and services to small businesses. This type of economic development includes but is not limited to: lodging, catering, transportation, location fees, lumber and construction supplies, local hires and more.
Attendance of a Film Friendly Texas workshop by a community representative, who will then go on to serve as the community’s point-of-contact for film inquiries, is one of the three required steps for Film Friendly certification. Most communities will choose a member of their city or county government, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce or Economic Development Corporation.Back to the event calendar
