• Can film commissions connect you with co-producers to take advantage of co-production treaties between countries?
• What recommendations do local film commissions make to protect your crew and provide additional security or insurance?
• Can they recommend local fixers, producers, vendors and translators, and assist with things like money exchanges, passport expediting and VIP travel?
• Which US commissioners give personalized scouting tours, facilitate highway, bridge and tunnel closures, and make the impossible possible?

Join the Executive Director as well as US and international film commissioners from the Association of Film Commissioners International for a meet and greet and roundtable discussion moderated by PGA East member Jamie Schutz.

Moderator:
Jamie Schutz, Executive Producer, Ogilvy Entertainment
What do leeches, AK-47s, pirates, Masai warriors, helicopter evacuations and sacrificial goats all have in common? Jamie Schutz has encountered them all and lived to tell about it during a 20-year career that has taken him around the world and back again.
