AFCI (Association of Film Commissioners International)
How do you close a street for an important shot? How do you open the doors at an abandoned ghost town? How do you find out what you need to know about locations? You ask a member of the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI), the official association of government film contacts worldwide. Film Commissions provide help for location research and liaise with facilities, production services, local and regional government, businesses and other bodies. They offer this services free of charge, as all members of the AFCI work on behalf of and are financed by national or local authorities. Film Commissions who are members of the AFCI must adhere to the organization's guidelines, operate on a non-profit basis and be free of third-party control.
