The N.C. Film Office, a unit of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina represents the N.C. Department of Commerce and is a client-driven office that services international, out-of-state and in-state production companies, as well as North Carolina production support services and North Carolina film professionals.
The Film Office markets the entire state as a location to retain an industry that directly spends over $300 million in local economies which in turn creates high paying, quality North Carolina jobs in the film, television and commercial industries.
In addition to funds from the state’s Film and Entertainment Grant, the Film Office stresses the extensive array of North Carolina support services, and a workforce of more than 4,000 local professionals found in the state. The Film Office also retains and manages a location database with thousands of locations around the state and works in tandem with various regional economic development offices.
The Film Office handles all aspects of production including assisting companies and productions with set up in North Carolina, successfully negotiating and problem solving issues that arise during the making of film, and leveraging the success of completed and distributed projects as an activation tool in promoting North Carolina tourism.
