Understanding and Utilizing the Missouri Film Office

Missouri has been the setting for many films and television shows recently including Gone Girl and Ozark. Andrea Sporcic, Film Office Specialist, will teach us about the Missouri Film Office, housed within the Missouri Division of Tourism, and what services and resources they can offer for your downtown or community. They have resources and examples related to the uptick in small theaters in historic buildings, how to utilize those downtown theaters with local film festivals, and have various contacts and connections that can help in your downtown film and theater endeavors.

Learn about Missouri Film Office resources for communities including marketing locations for film and TV projects, hosting film festivals, and utilizing spaces for art house cinemas.
