California Governor Gavin Newsom appointed Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn to the California Film Commission on Tuesday.
“California is the world’s leader in motion picture, television and commercial production, thanks to the creativity and hard work of people across our State,” Hahn said in a statement.
“I want to thank Governor Newsom for appointing me to the California Film Commission and I look forward to working to support our thriving film and television industry so that LA County and our state continues to be the location of choice now and for decades to come,” she said.
The California Film Commission enhances California’s status as the leader in motion picture, television and commercial production, according to the CFC’s website.
A one-stop office for filmmakers, we support productions of all sizes and budgets with location assistance and our extensive digital location library, free online permitting, low-cost use of state properties as shooting locations, and production assistance.
The Commission also administers the state’s Film & Television Tax Credit Program and serve as primary liaison between productions and all levels of government to eliminate barriers to filming.
The California Film Commission is one of several economic development departments within the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development working to attract, retain and expand business opportunities in California.
The Commission has an advisory board of up to 21 members appointed by the Governor, Senate Pro Tem and Speaker of the Assembly who work to enhance the economic climate in California by keeping film industry jobs and projects in the state.
