Our Global Production Alert section on AFCI’s website has been updated as of April 10, 2023.  This section now allows members to provide any sort of alert that may affect producers looking to access your territory or regions (cities, states/provinces and countries) worldwide.  This includes closures, travel restrictions, health information or any other guidance/limitations or closures that would affect any kind of production.   The Global Production Alert helps film offices prevent the spread of misinformation, speculation and confusion.
