For films in production in Jamaica, The Commission provides various services such as assistance securing permits and customs processes, location scouting, providing information on the equipment rental process and customs brokers as well as local production managers and service providers.
While The Commission is also involved in promoting Jamaica as a film location there are several other investment opportunities available due to its lush and varying landscapes, rich culture and heritage and its various resources. Sports and music are also areas for which Jamaica has achieved recognition internationally.
