How we define a film commission

A film commission is a specialized screen sector organization that is formally endorsed by the government of the region it represents. It offers comprehensive support to the film, television and media industry. Activities of a film commission may include development, production funding, and location and infrastructure support. 

A Film Commission/Film Office must be endorsed by the government of the region/jurisdiction that the office oversees.  If the office indicates it oversees multiple jurisdictions, authorization from each jurisdiction’s government to represent that region is required.
Services a film commission may offer include but are not limited to include: location scouting, connections to industry facilities, crew and services, connections to government contacts, production incentives, and a wide range of support that will enable productions of various scopes and formats to successfully be completed in the region.  This in turn leads to economic growth which the office should be able to record, report on and encourage.
A Film Commission/Film Office provides all services at no charge, with the exception of permit fees if the permitting process falls under the authorization of the film commission/film office.  These services  are initiated from initial contact from a production/producer/studio/content creator through the close of production.

NOTE: Film commissioners should always ensure any production or entity is legitimate before providing services.
There must be no conflict of interest, either actual or apparent, between the duties of the film commission and the film commissioner.  The film commissioner can not be engaged as an employee in an entity that would have a significant financial benefit from any incoming production that takes place in the territory.  Positions a film commissioner can not hold or have significant financial benefit (stakeholder, partner) in: role of producer, or work at a production company, vendor or service business that caters to the production industry, or other services (technical advisor, working actor) in the production industry.  Additionally, the film commission can not be overseen by a labor union, a for-profit business or a commercial entity.
