Coming out of last year’s Vermont Film and Media Industry Task Force report, the Vermont Creative Network is advocating for a new Film and Creative Media Workforce Development Initiative with the goal of expanding the film and creative media industry in Vermont.

We are requesting a targeted, thoughtful approach to supporting film and creative media that focuses on building the basic infrastructure that we know will make it easier to do this work in Vermont.

Specifically, we are partnering with Vermont Production Collective to:

  • Create and maintain a centralized database of film and creative media professionals, equipment, venues, locations, and other resources
  • Create and maintain a database of employment and internship opportunities in the film and creative media industry to retain Vermont’s highly skilled film and creative media graduates (managed by Vermont Production Collective)

We’ll also examine a long-term, sustainable proposal for production incentives that will support existing Vermont-based film production and bring production projects to Vermont. 

For more details on our legislative priorities, view the recording of our Creative Sector Advocacy Priorities webinar.
