West Virginia Film Office
The West Virginia Film Office (WVFO) is a section of the West Virginia Department of Commerce, Division of Tourism, and is a member of the Association of Film Commissioners International (www.afci.org).
The WVFO provides support for motion pictures, television programs, commercials, music videos, and other productions that occur in West Virginia. The WVFO connects its clients (such as, studios, producers, production companies, advertising agencies, etc.) with West Virginia's workforce and vendors; provides complimentary scouting of locations and coordination of client itineraries; assists in securing site access and filming permits; assists with mapping, research, and logistical and technical support; acts as a liaison between its clients and governmental agencies, economic development/tourism/community leaders, and private residential and business property owners; and provides media and additional support as needed.
The WVFO publishes an annual Production Services Directory (PSD), which is an essential resource for anyone mounting production projects in West Virginia, and publishes an E-mail Blast newsletter, which keeps readers informed about production activity in the state, among other topics. The WVFO also maintains a Digital Locations Library, which allows hundreds of West Virginia locations to be searched and viewed over the Internet by producers, directors, location scouts, and others searching for the perfect location for their productions.
The content provided on the WVFO website is designed to assist production teams before, during, and even after a visit to West Virginia. The information is also designed for the enjoyment of visitors who have a general interest in the motion picture and television industries.
