Note to my fellow actors: If I were to add the cost of my SAG-AFTRA dues to my monthly fees paid to IMDb Pro, Casting Networks, and to the cost of keeping my website running, I would come up with a significant sum. Let’s add the cost of headshots as well…they are not cheap…and the cost of ongoing training to keep our instrument tuned. Those costs add up to an amount that makes the yearly cost of membership in Film Florida seem like pocket change. Yet, without the help of Film Florida, all the money spent on dues and other costs will mean little if we don’t have films being made in our state. It’s a no-brainer, my Florida Actor Friends. I joined two years ago. You should, too!
Ray Watters, Actor

Even during a pandemic and when production was almost nonexistent, Film Florida was still working hard because they believe in our filmmakers, crew, and talent. Don’t stop believing! I do wish I could contribute more but every little bit helps. If you can, support #FilmFlorida.
Victoria White, Actor

“I joined Film Florida because I believe in its mission and its members. I can tell you is what I see Film Florida doing right: I applaud the efforts being made to advocate for our filmmaking professionals, networking opportunities and bringing work to Florida. The Scholarships and educational opportunities offered by Film Florida are what always attract me to organizations in which I want to contribute. I am proud to be a member of Film Florida.”
Suzanne Niedland, BusEye Films

“We joined FF to get the word out about HUB (i.e. the proper exposure we needed). We joined to network. We joined to learn about the various film commissioners needs needed for insurance and to offer our support and service; We joined to support the Film Industry in Florida while educating the film industry about the catastrophe insurance like hurricanes when shooting here during the Tropical season.”
Carol Bressi, Agent / Director of Entertainment Insurance for HUB International Insurance Group

“Film Florida is the one association in the state of Florida that has embraced a constant dialogue of Film and Television Professionals from Studios, Labor, Associations, and Film Commissions, presenting a united industry voice that effectively communicates with the State Legislature and supports the initiatives created by the Legislature and the Governor.”
Chuck Elderd, Former Palm Beach County Film Commissioner
