Established in 2007, it promotes the Sicilian territory as an outstanding location for audiovisual productions, and supports the developement of the local film industry and its professional resources. Through the annual publication of public calls, and providing support and free advice, “Sicilia Film Commission” backs productions that choose the Island as the ideal set for their shooting. The digitisation of Sicilian cinemas and the support to the network of the Sicilian film festivals, including the TaorminaFilmFest, are guaranteed by special dedicated funds. “Sicilia Film Commission” also encourages the professional growth of young filmmakers through the Sicily-based Documentary Film Department of “Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia” (Italian National Film School) and pays attention to the new audiovisual forms through public calls addressed to the production of web-series and experimental short films.
