Sacramento Film Office 5-Year Plan

In 2019 the Convention and Cultural Services Department engaged Metris Arts Consulting along with Rich Moskal (former director of the Chicago Film Office) to assess the current film production environment in Sacramento, analyze the City’s potential, and provide a plan that will help Sacramento position itself as a production destination. This 5-year plan includes a number of strategic goals along with short-, mid-, and long-term actions to help achieve those goals. The Convention and Cultural Services Department’s new Film Office is very excited to execute this plan and to unlock new creative and economic possibilities for the City and the region over the next several years.
