About Us

Asian Film Commissions Network (AFCNet) is a network of film commissions and professional film support agencies in Asia and AFCNet has become Asia’s largest non-profit international film-related organization with 55 members from 19 countries(as of 2021). As international co-production and overseas location shooting became popular, AFCNet was launched to facilitate information sharing in regards to filming locations, regulations, incentives and clearance requirements in Asia and to support member organizations’ efficient interactions with foreign production companies and/or related industry-supporting agencies. AFCNet priorities are to promote the steady and sustainable growth of regional film industry and to contribute local economies through improved systems and infrastructure.
