About Us

As a division of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, the purpose of the Tennessee Film Entertainment & Music Commission is to promote and facilitate economic development of the film/music community through the recruitment of business; promoting Tennessee as a location in feature films, television productions, commercials, and other works, building infrastructure, and encouraging and supporting the interactive growth of the film and music communities through a wide range of marketing, networking and advertising efforts. To accomplish these goals, the TFEMC wears many hats and serves many different entities, on many different levels.

  • Serve as an information resource center for film and music industry professionals
  • Market Tennessee as a location for film & video projects
  • Coordinate film projects that take place on state property
  • Serve as a liaison to Metro, State and Federal agencies, as well as the private sector


Some of our key activities include:
  • Recruit music and film projects and business to Tennessee
  • Provide preliminary location photos and other resource information to industry professionals, both locally and worldwide
  • Publish the annual Tennessee Production Directory, a listing of more than 1000 film-related individuals and companies
