  2. AFFILIATESPreferred Industry Affiliates (those operating almost exclusively in the industry e.g. sound stage facilities), Production Company AffiliatesBusiness Affiliates (those for which the film, television and media industry is but one aspect of their business e.g. hotels) and Education Affiliates.
