  • Having one point of contact for film in town/city.
     

  • Adding a film section to town website with pictures/shows that have been made there.
     

  • Linking to film industry social media accounts and sharing stories about film with their communities online.
     

  • Engaging with local MLA and Ministers in provincial government in support of a robust incentive program.
