What we do
We support audiovisual projects in Ticino and we promote the region as a location, and competence center, for film and for any form of audiovisual production.
The Ticino Film Commission supports film and audiovisual production in Ticino and promotes the region as a location. It is a non-profit foundation, established in 2014 thanks to the public financial support of the Department of Finance and Economy of the Republic and Canton of Ticino. Its founding members are Ticino Turismo, the Associazione film e audiovisivi Ticino (AFAT), the Gruppo registi e sceneggiatori indipendenti della Svizzera italiana (GRSI of ARF/ FDS) and the Locarno Film Festival. Main financial backers are Banca Stato, Ticino Turismo and the Regional Tourism Organisations of Canton Ticino.
Thanks to an enthusiastic and competent team, it attracts and accompanies audiovisual productions aiming to enhance the area's cultural, landscape and historical heritage in order to increase visibility and at the same time to create new job opportunities and growth for local professionals. In addition, the TFC supports the local audiovisual industry by supporting productions on a practical level, distributing works and creating opportunities for meetings, exchanges and training for professionals. The TFC offers consultancy as well as financial, logistical and organisational support to any audiovisual production interested in operating in the region, scouting and proposing different types of interesting and unique locations, promoting local service companies and facilitating contacts with public and private bodies for the granting of authorisations, permits and the availability of facilities.
Ten years after its inception, the TFC has become the competence centre for audiovisual creation in Italian-speaking Switzerland and is now an indispensable link in the chain of the regional and national film industry.
