The Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) recently announced that Kevin Clark will take over as executive director of the official worldwide association of government film contacts whose members total more than 300 film commissioners on six continents. The appointment was made after a unanimous vote at a recent AFCI board meeting, which was held during the Toronto International Film Festival.
Now starting his eighth year with the AFCI, Clark has in-depth knowledge of the association, and has overseen numerous programs and initiatives while bringing a strong emphasis to member service and relationships.
“I am very excited to begin my new role with the AFCI,” says Clark. “The future has a great deal in store for us, with a completely new system for online education, the return of Cineposium in 2013, expanded media tools through Beyond Cinema magazine, and so much more. Working with our worldwide membership and industry partners, I am committed to delivering professional, timely and efficient tools and products for film commissions.” Clark replaces Martin Cuff who is returning to his company Martin Cuff Consulting, a firm that specializes in working with governments and associations.
The Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) is the official professional organization for film commissioners who assist film, television and video production throughout the world. It is a non-profit educational association whose members serve as city, county, state, regional, provincial or national film commissioners for their respective governmental jurisdictions.
