About MCFC

The mission of the Monterey County Film Commission is to inspire and facilitate film and media production throughout Monterey County, creating positive economic impact.

Created by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors in 1987, the Monterey County Film Commission works to increase economic development through the film industry, and also to support locals through employment and education related to the film industry. Each year an average of $4 million comes to our area from film production.
