FilmTT welcomes location managers for Fam Tour
The Trinidad and Tobago Film Company Limited (FilmTT) invites you to an exclusive Welcome Reception for visiting location managers on Friday 10th May 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Veni Mangé Restaurant, 67A Ariapita Avenue, Woodbrook.
FilmTT will host its first Familiarisation Tour (Fam Tour) in many years for 3 influential US and UK location managers, to introduce Trinidad and Tobago as a competitive Caribbean location. The welcome reception will provide the opportunity for the Minister of Trade and Industry, Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, members of FilmTT’s Film Friendly Network, and the media to meet and greet the selected location managers.
Fam Tours are tools that film commissions like FilmTT use to familiarise prospective international directors, producers and location managers with locations and production resources in their country, city or state, and encourage them to bring future productions. Fam Tours can also be highly effective for establishing long-term professional relationships with potential clients. The expected return on investment for a Fam Tour is that at least one international production would decide to shoot here in the next year, creating jobs in both the creative and service sectors, increasing the country’s foreign exchange earnings, and expanding international visibility for Brand T&T.
In a year where there is a strategic focus on raising FilmTT and Trinidad and Tobago’s visibility as a location, a Fam Tour presents a great opportunity to raise its profile to an influential group of industry decision makers, leveraging the recently update brand, as well as our growing list of partners who are contributing to making it easier to shoot in Trinidad and Tobago for both domestic and international producers through their commitment to FilmTT’s Film Friendly Network.
