The Ticino Film Commission was created in 2014 thanks to substantial public funding assured by the regional economic policy departments of the Republic and the Canton of Ticino. It is a non-profit organisation and committed solely to ensuring added value for all particpants and for the cantonal territory as a whole.
Operational from 2014, it includes among its main objectives the promotion of the territory as a location for filming, and any form of audio-visual production, attracting national and international productions, at the same time supporting the local audio-visual industry and contributing to the creation of new work opportunities for those in the local sector.
The Ticino Film Commission – Southern Switzerland Ticino Film Commission Sagl – is a non-profit company constituted under Swiss law, created and run by the Fondazione Ticino Film Commission, through its operational staff.
