Film Office Services

Our goals will be to facilitate filming in Rancho Cordova and the Sacramento Region for productions of all sizes, capture economic impact for the city, promote the region as a film location, and support the industry’s success locally. In simple terms… the film office acts as the “agent” for the city and region. The film office is responsible for marketing and developing sales strategies to attract business and foster the growth of the creative film and media industries in the region. By attracting productions to the
area they can provide direct economic benefit through rental of hotel rooms, locations, vehicles, etc., and indirect economic benefit via the increased exposure of appearing in films and television.

The film office is also the official liaison between the creative media industries and the community, serving as a “translator”. They are also a resource, assisting in identifying suitable venues and locations in the Sacramento area as well as finding crew, equipment, housing and a wide
variety of service providers. The film office acts as an advocate for growth and exposure of the local industry.
