Regional Film Liaisons share expertise with regional content creators, filmmakers, and media professionals through networking events, workshops, and crew and vendor databases specific to the community in order to help attract productions. These volunteer regional partners also market the diversity of Colorado’s regions and help identify local support services for the film industry.

“I am honored and thrilled to take on the role of Western Colorado Liaison for the OEDIT Film Office Extension. This is an exciting opportunity to foster the growth of the film and media industry in this region,” said Meuwly. “I look forward to collaborating with local crew, talent and production professionals to build bridges that connect our community to the wider world of cinema. Together, we’ll make western Colorado a vibrant destination for film and media production.”

The Western Colorado Film Commission launched in November and will help filmmakers navigate permitting, identify locations, connect with crew and support services.
