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.
Our annual Cineposium provides members a unique environment to discuss topics currently affecting the business of production and to brainstorm solutions to challenges members face in an ever-changing industry. Consider hosting the event in your territory.
AFCI Week, our hallmark annual event, brings film commissioners and industry together with the film industry players. The successful Business to Business Day in a classroom setting, where senior executives from major film and television companies come in one-by-one and speak to the our members, highlighting their location and infrastructure needs as well as up-and-coming projects.
AFCI is committed to providing film commission staff members with the educational tools they need to thrive in today’s competitive marketplace AFCI University.
