The FLICS website also offers productions the opportunity to search for locations throughout the state with a single email. Also available is a list of and links to its events held during the year, legislative updates, a rotating profile of members’ regions, special location profiles and news, statewide and local financial incentives, highlights of recent productions shooting on location, links to many industry partners and much more.

What is the difference between the Film Liaisons In California Statewide (FLICS) and the California Film Commission (CFC)?
FLICS is a non-profit professional membership association of independently operated film commissions and offices throughout California. It provides its membership education and marketing opportunities (often in conjunction with the CFC), provides valuable and timely location resources to media productions, takes an active role in lobbying for legislation which retains and promotes production in California, and hosts annual events in support of and celebrating the media industry. The California Film Commission (CFC) is the state film commission for California, currently part of California’s Business, Transportation and Housing Agency. The CFC promotes filming within the state providing many state level resources in this effort including a very successful Film and Television Tax Credit Program, permitting assistance, and many links to resources useful to productions and the public.
