The only conference held exclusively to promote filming in California gets bigger and better each year and is the go-to event for those seeking to make the most of California’s unmatched production resources, including its incredibly diverse locations and vast infrastructure.

Come help us celebrate the productions and production jobs that have been returning to California. Come for the great panels and guest speakers. Come meet film commissioners from across the state. Come for the networking.

Once again, we will be presenting the California Golden SLATE award to an individual who has championed filming in California.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Conference

This event is open to film, TV, commercial, still photography and new media professionals who work or are interested in working in California. Registration is non-transferrable, and attendees must be at least 18 years of age.

NOTICE ABOUT SUITCASING:In order to protect our valued exhibitors and the investment they have made in participating in the Film in California Conference, show rules strictly prohibit solicitation, "suitcasing", or "outboarding" by who transact business at the conference and do NOT have exhibit booths. Suitcasing and outboarding give non-exhibiting companies and attendees an unfair competitive advantage over FICC exhibitors who have invested money and other resources to exhibit. These practices unfairly capitalize on the momentum created by the FICC to market the conference and deprive the FICC of revenue used to support our programs and initiatives.

SUITCASING refers to those non-exhibiting companies or persons who go to conferences as an attendees but "work the aisles" from their suitcase (briefcase) and solicit business in the aisles of the exposition floor.

OUTBOARDING refers to non-exhibiting companies that set up exhibits or events outside of the conference location and use hospitality suites or restaurants-and encourage show attendees to leave the show floor. Off-site events held during conference hours diminish the size and diffuse the quality of the audience available to legitimate exhibitors.

Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. On-site registration will be available only if room for additional attendees is available. Please register in advance.
