Welcome to the Upstate New York Film Commission

Upstate Film Commission is a comprehensive information resource for connection with the Upstate New York film industry. Here you will find all the needed information about permits, laws, government agencies, guilds, and unions.

The Upstate Film Commission reinforces and promotes the Upstate New York Film and television infrastructure, and connects government and TV/film professionals to secure and maintain film-friendly policies.

The Upstate Film Commission assists with sourcing studios, facilities, locations, key crew, and talent for major productions, guides on the Upstate film and TV tax reliefs and production funding, and advises on production-related regulations and permits. 

Crew and Talent

The Upstate Film Commission understands the real value of film productions, and that is why it enforces the idea of bringing the right people to the production team and cast. Upstate New York produces an array of actors with diverse looks and ethnicities, and every year more and more of them are graduating and getting roles in New York State’s screen projects. 

Studios and Stages

Upstate New York proposes a network of production spaces, including purpose-built and converted sound stages, capable of accommodating feature film and television shows of any scale and genre, conventionally located around key production hubs.
