AFCI Locations Show - a global gathering
Now a major international event in the film industry calendar, this year’s AFCI Locations Show is ready to open its doors on Thursday 5 March.
The event is held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, and brings together representatives from the film and TV industry all around the world, from independent filmmakers to film commissioners. It includes many showcases, seminars and sessions exploring global production at various levels.
One of the sessions opening the three-day symposium is called An Introduction to California’s Film & TV Tax Credit, a subject that has been very much in the news recently. The California Film Commission’s executive director Amy Lemisch and program director Nancy Stone will be in conversation and taking questions.
Among this year’s many speakers this year are Robert Bentley, location manager on major projects such as Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Avengers: Age of Ultron and the fourth series of Homeland; Nick Maniatis, director of New Mexico State Film Office and Kattie Kotok, executive VP US production, British Film Commission.
