About us

Film Upstate NY was founded in 2016 by the tourism promotion agencies of six counties – Albany, Fulton,┬áRensselaer, filmlogoSaratoga, Schenectady, and Washington – and a consortium of individuals representing chambers of commerce, state government, an actors equity association, film workforce development organizations, film production companies, public television, a performing arts center, and many other others.

Although the organization is new, the Film Upstate NY team has an incredible breadth and depth of industry experience both in every aspect of film and television development.
