The objective of the Ticino Film Commission is, on the one hand, to attract national and international audiovisual production to Ticino to bring jobs, regional expenditure and awareness to tourist destinations and, on the other, to encourage Ticino cinema making.
The Ticino Film Commission is a non-profit foundation, established in 2014 thanks to the important public financial support guaranteed by the regional economic policy of the Republic and Canton of Ticino through the Department of Finance and Economy with the aim of promoting and enhancing the Ticino area as a location for cinema and for any form of audiovisual production. Its founding members are Ticino Turismo, the Locarno Film Festival, Associazione Film Audiovisivi Ticinese (AFAT) and the Gruppo registi e sceneggiatori indipendenti della Svizzera italiana (GRSI of ARF/FDS).
Thanks to an enthusiastic and expert team, we have not only stimulated the networking and development of audiovisual skills in the area, but above all we have welcomed and supported national and international audiovisual productions that choose Ticino as a location for their projects, successfully fulfilling our goal: to create economic, tourist and cultural benefits in our region. By attracting and supporting audiovisual productions capable of enhancing the cultural, scenic and historical heritage of the area, we are committed to creating new job opportunities and growth for local professionals, while making a contribution to the tourist visibility of our Canton. Furthermore, we support the local audiovisual industry by creating opportunities for meetings, exchanges and training for industry professionals.
