August 6, 2016 begins the second session of the 52nd Legislature. The Arizona Film & Media Coalition (AFMC) continues to focus on promoting the creation of an Arizona Film Office. As always, we appreciate donations of any amount to help defray the costs of our efforts. All AFMC board members are volunteers who work in the film and media industry.

To all Friends of Film & Media in Arizona, we need your HELP with something that affects you, your family and your very livelihood!
Film makers & Production personnel; when was the last time you deposited a check in your bank with money earned from out of state production?
Business owners; when was the last time you billed for a production related job?
Sadly the answers are not very positive. Without someone at the state level promoting and marketing this wonderful production location, and assisting producers looking to shoot here the answers will continue to be bad. We no longer have anyone answering the phone when producers call looking for help with permitting, finding crews, lodging, locations, etc. They think Arizona isn't interested in the money they want to bring here. But YOU can make a difference.
Help us bring back an Office of Film and Media to once again put Arizona in play as the major production center we once were.
While the Arizona Film & Media Coalition works on the best strategies for our member organizations to move forward on these issues, we ask that you continue to support the cause by ensuring that you stay connected with us via social media, so that you can receive the latest updates as they happen. Here are three things you can do:
- LIKE us on Facebook. (AZFilmandMedia)
- FOLLOW us on Twitter. (@azfilmandmedia and @AzFMC)
- Forward a link to this webpage to a friend via email or your own social media channels. http://azfilmandmedia.org/afmc/
Arizona is known as a business-friendly state and the film business is one of the most attractive industries a state can target. Please help us bring back the Arizona Film Office.
Thank You so Much For Your Support!
