Creation of Regional Film Office Considered by County Leaders
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is set to discuss at Tuesday's meeting establishing a regional film office intended to create new job opportunities and support San Diego film and arts.
Nathan Fletcher, chair of the board, introduced a policy to establish the film office Monday at the Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero in San Diego.
"San Diego is the best location for filmmakers to work because of our fair climate, beautiful and diverse landscapes, and our talented workforce," he said. "A regional film office can serve as a one-stop-shop for the film industry.
"By cutting the red tape of coordinating permits with multiple jurisdictions, creating a centralized marketing message, and having a dedicated staff to champion San Diego as a destination for filmmakers and production studios, we can lift up our local economy," Fletcher said. "It's time we have a San Diego Regional Film Office."
