Why Cineposium?

Cineposium is unique! Hosted by the Association of Film Commissioners International, this is the only opportunity for film commissioners to set aside competition and work together to benefit their own community and raise the level of professionalism and stature of film commissioners everywhere.


Film commissioners are key members of the film industry, and we need to make sure everyone knows it.                                  


Only at Cineposium can you:

Consult with the experts: your colleagues! Being a Film Commissioner is an exclusive club, with less than 1000 people sharing this classification in the entire world.
No one understands the unique challenges of this job better than another film commissioner, and at Cineposium you get the chance to 'pick the brains' of over 100 of the most experienced and engaged members.


Address major industry topics such as tax incentives and other forms of funding, workforce development, lobbying vs. education, insurance and safety issues, internal and external marketing, film festivals and film-related tourism, and working with different cultures.

Hear it from "the horse's mouth".


Location managers, studio executives, independent producers, and other industry leaders tell us directly what they need from film commissions, how their part of the industry is changing, and where they see opportunities to collaborate.

Learn about the latest trends and technologies. Long before most people heard of previsualization or appreciated the power of crowdfunding, leaders in those industry segments presented at Cineposium. Our members got a head start on such diverse topics as green filmmaking, the transition to digital filmmaking, the explosion of visual effects, and the emergence of video games as a major industry driver.

If you want to grow your film commission, increase the economic impact of film in your region, and provide support for your film community, the information you need to make it all happen can be found at Cineposium. Reserve your seat today!
