Gov. Greg Abbott has invited communities from around the state to participate in a Film Friendly Texas Workshop on Tuesday, February 19, in Bastrop, one of more than 120 already-certified Film Friendly Texas communities.

The workshop, hosted by the Texas Film Commission, is open to Texas community representatives interested in learning about the Texas film production industry and about how to become Film Friendly Texas certified to attract new local jobs and investments.

“In promoting the Lone Star State as a premier moving image production destination, the Texas Film Commission has attracted $1.39 billion in local spending,” said Governor Abbott. “Through the Film Friendly Texas training and certification process, certified communities are readied to help match local businesses with production-related needs, stimulating the local economy by creating jobs for Texas-based crew members and local residents, as well as creating on-site spending at local small businesses.”

The target audience for this workshop is Texas community representatives who will serve as the community’s point-of-contact for facilitating film requests. Most communities choose a member of their city or county government, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce or Economic Development Corporation.

The Film Friendly Texas Workshop in Bastrop is being held in partnership with Bastrop County, Visit Bastrop and the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce.
