FilMiami offers free online tool to match industry professionals with production companies

The Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources’ Office of Film and Entertainment (FilMiami) now offers local professionals in the film and entertainment industry a tool that can match them to available production jobs. Individuals can submit their information through crew and vendor sign-up forms, which will be entered into a database that is made available to production companies.

The Crew and Vendor Sign-Up form is for any crew member or local vendor in the film, digital media and entertainment industry residing in South Florida. To participate, the person must be legally eligible to work in the United States and must submit a link to their resume or a link to their credits at IMDb with the form.

Any vendor that is located in Miami-Dade County and has a registered legal business with the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations is eligible to participate and must complete the online form to be considered.

This tool will help the film office match local film and entertainment industry professionals looking for film projects to production companies that need local talent. The film and entertainment industry contributes millions of dollars annually to the local economy and creates jobs for residents. We are also working on creating a Local Production Guide.
