Research + Best Practices

The AFCI is actively engaged in the development of Best Practices for Film Commissions. These are developed in consultation with both Commissions and Industry.

Best Practices In Screen Sector Development

On Friday September 13th 2019 at AFCI’s 43rd Cineposium conference, AFCI’s detailed global report on Best Practice in Screen Sector Development was released. The report, undertaken for AFCI by creative industries consultancy firm Olsberg SPI highlights a range of successful strategies and policies that have been implemented by established and emerging markets around the world with the aim of maximizing their share of high-value production activity.

Four of the most important areas within which best practice can be demonstrated provide the framework for the Study. They are:

  • Automatic incentives;
  • Workforce capacity;
  • Capacity building in physical infrastructure and services; and
  • Film-friendly production environment.

Examples of best practice in all four areas are included in this Study.
