How Does a Film Commission Serve All its Stakeholders?

Stakeholders can represent disparate and conflicting agendas. One must first serve the entity that has hired him/her while balancing the needs of all stakeholders including the community, the crew base, funders, the industry, and the public and private sectors.

A reputable film commission must avoid actual or apparent conflicts of interest between the official duties and services of the film commission office and the private financial interests of the film commissioner and film commission employees. Additionally, a film commission must not be or be controlled by a labor union, private for-profit business organization or proprietary commercial entity.
