Film NC’s program creates job opportunities for North Carolinians by recruiting productions, motion picture studios, film, television and commercial professionals to North Carolina, and collaborates with the regional film commissions to promote and encourage filmmaking across the state.

Messaging to film producers focuses on North Carolina’s natural scenic beauty, highly regarded local crew and infrastructure, and the financial incentives offered through the state legislature.
