On November 8, voters will be heading to the polls for the election. Now is the time for all eligible voters to familiarize ourselves with the candidates to determine who will best represent us and our industry in the state legislature.

We encourage you to engage with your local candidates; you can call their office, send a letter or email and even volunteer to walk for them which is a great time to discuss issues important to you and our industry. You can get information about registering to vote, voting locations, and candidate information at FloridaWins.org.

If you have questions about candidates for the Florida House and/or Florida Senate, feel free to reach out to us by calling 407-494-6195 or by e-mail at info@FilmFlorida.org. We will offer factual, objective information that we have gathered in our conversations with the candidates to help you be the most educated voter possible.

Film Florida is a non-partisan organization supporting all candidates and parties. Per our by-laws, we cannot advocate or endorse candidates or political parties. However, we do believe it is our responsibility to understand how candidates feel about our industry. With many new faces seeking to join the Florida Legislature, we are actively reaching out to each new candidate for the Florida House and Senate introducing them to Film Florida and asking them to share their thoughts on Florida’s film, television and digital media industry.

These last weeks before Election Day are an important time for all voters to take advantage of every available opportunity we have to get our questions answered by the candidates. Voting is the one time when we all have an equal say in standing up for the issues and priorities that matter most to us and our community.

Film Florida encourages you to cast your vote in the general election in November!
