The Palm Beaches are Film Friendly
Our mission is to generate a positive impact on business tourism and the economy
in Palm Beach County through the growth of commercial production by attracting
on-location production, educating our local workforce and providing superior
services to both the visiting and the indigenous production communities.
Since 1989, The Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission (FTC) has served as a hub for location
and production information within The Palm Beaches, operating on one principal policy:
Provide the Best Quality Service Anywhere
Our highly qualified and professional staff is dedicated to providing extraordinary service that includes free permits to industry professionals that visit Palm Beach County for production. The FTC envisions The Palm Beaches growing in stature as a production center through its reputation for first class service, the development of a qualified and diversified workforce, along with enhanced partnerships that support production facilities, industry events and film festivals.
Education is an important element in advancing the local film and television industry. Through an annual contract with the Department of Housing and Economic Sustainability, the FTC works with Palm Beach County schools to assure that students are receiving up-to-date equipment and instruction. This contract also funds The Palm Beaches Student Showcase of Films where Florida student filmmakers, writers, graphic design and digital media artists are awarded cash prizes and scholarships.
The FTC is governed by an active Board of Directors made up of local and national production professionals, members at large and agency representatives; all dedicated to enhancing programs and growing the film, television, digital media and the still photography industries within The Palm Beaches.
