  Enroll in Course

The AFCNet African Film Commission Professionals course is aimed at African government representatives - national, provincial / state / county and city - who have been tasked with promoting and developing the capacity of their jurisdiction to host film productions both to create jobs and to boost tourism. Participants will likely work at a government film commission or film office, but equally may be assigned to a convention and visitors’ bureau, a mayor’s office, a chamber of commerce or a local tourism board or office.

The course provides a range of information, contacts and supporting content on how to serve the film sector’s complex production requirements as a Film Commission Professional - whilst simultaneously managing the needs of local government, business and communities. Armed with the information learned in this course, participants will be able to confidently begin marketing and managing film production destinations to world-class standards.

Completion of the course will qualify you for Certification as an African Film Commission Professional, and (subject to completion of an Affadavit), to membership of the African Film Commission Network.
