As the Regional Film Commissioner, Sabrina Jurisich is committed to supporting both out-of-town and local filmmakers while working to stimulate the local economy through the business of film production. “Our area provides an abundance of resources in a close proximity,” states Jurisich, “combined with low to no cost permits and an area known for hospitality, Upstate California provides a great backdrop for all kinds of productions.”

Why Film Matters

As one of the top industries in the state, the film industry provides jobs – and lots of them! In 2021, California estimated 860,000 jobs related to film production throughout the state. There is no doubt that the industry is putting a lot of people to work! Throughout the state of California, production is surpassing pre-COVID levels. In fact, a recent report listed the film and television industry as the second highest economic driver in the State of California between agriculture (#1) and travel and tourism (#3). Another report released by the California Film Commission reveals that the California Tax Credit program is performing with a return of $24 for every $1 invested. There is no doubt that the film industry is thriving in California, and we are thankful for the increased opportunities to work with incredible filmmakers to help facilitate local jobs and to bolster our local economy as a result of the incredible economic impact from productions choosing our region as a filming destination.
