Film & TV Industry Diverse Suppliers Directory Now Available


In an effort to support the goals of increasing diversity in New York State’s film and television industry vendor community, The New York State Department of Economic Development created a list of New York State-based diverse vendors originated from Supplier Diversity Showcases they held in 2017 and 2019 in New York City. It includes a range of business and support services principally operated by diverse owners.

 We are sharing this link with PGA members to ensure that you are aware of this resource and to make you aware that if you would like to be added to the list, send an email to nyfilm@esd.ny.gov and indicate your desire to be included in the directory. Note: In order to be considered, you must be based in New York State and self-identify as diverse.
