The St. Petersburg Clearwater Film Commission's goal is to highlight how this community is a prime spot for television, film, digital media production, and commercials.
The Film Commission engages in direct marketing and trade missions at significant film festivals, markets, and trade shows in both North America
and international settings, such as Cannes, Toronto, and Sundance. The film commission supports local festivals and fosters industry development with an innovative program. Some of the categories suitable for funding incentives through the company's business development program are music videos, television, film, and digital media. Film SPC also provides free workshops and maintains an online location database and production guide.
The St. Petersburg/Clearwater area is a picturesque destination. The location offers some of the highest-ranked beaches in the United States and a vibrant cultural and arts locale in small towns like Safety Harbor, Dunedin, and Tarpon Springs. Also, several high-praised museums, such as the Dali museum, are to be found, as well as a large coffee and craft brewing scene. A wide variety of water sports and fishing opportunities are abundant in the northwest Florida location. Taking into account all of these points, along with the historic and new architecture throughout the area, the Film Commission sees these as reasons why production industries need to come to this area.
"Behind The Scenes" is a carefully reviewed educational television program before broadcast. The show has accepted several awards for its endeavors.
