Film Wisconsin is a 501(c) (6) non-profit organization, that works with the Department of Tourism and other community partners to highlight the benefits of our state to the entire film and multimedia community. It is run primarily by a volunteer team of industry professionals that has a passion for filmmaking and multimedia production here in Wisconsin.
Film Wisconsin took the lead in developing the state's original incentive legislation that was signed into law in 2006, after receiving overwhelming bi-partisan support by the state's Legislature. These incentives were reduced and then ultimately eliminated in subsequent budget cycles. Film Wisconsin is now actively working to find new and innovative ways to grow and expand this incredibly dynamic industry and encourage the positive economic and social impact that it can create.
LOCATIONS: No general permits are required for filming in Wisconsin and location fees are generally modest. Special Events Permits, when required, are used for closing a street or some other public facility. Permits may be required in City, County & State Parks and Forests. The Film Office can advise on specific requirements.

FilmDayton promotes and markets the nine county region, in order to recruit and facilitate the production of film, television, commercials, corporate videos, music videos, and documentaries, as well as emerging forms of media.

It's been a long time coming, but as FilmDayton Board President Shaunn Baker shares, "the commission has been a goal since the organization started in 2008, and I'm glad we've finally made it happen."

The Fort Lee Film Commission can assist in location scouting, expediting police and parking requirements, and providing information on sites available for shooting. Fort Lee, NJ is the birthplace of the American film industry and the first American film town. Here studios such as Universal and Fox were born in the early 20th century. Fort Lee, NJ was the center of film production from 1908 trough WWI.
