Governor Abbott Announces Film Friendly Texas Designation For The City Of Denison
Austin, TX (STL.News) Governor Greg Abbott announced that the City of Denison, having completed the multi-step training and certification process, has been designated as a Film Friendly Texas community by the Texas Film Commission, which for 50 years has helped to grow local jobs and economies by promoting the Lone Star State as the premier destination for film, television, commercial, animation, visual effects, and video game production.
“I congratulate the City of Denison on earning the Film Friendly Texas designation and joining more than 150 other Texas communities who have received this recognition,” said Governor Abbott. “As we unleash the Lone Star State’s economic might, I am committed to working alongside all of our communities to ensure they have the knowledge and tools needed to succeed. Through the Film Friendly Texas training and certification process, communities large and small are readied to help match local businesses with production-related needs, creating jobs for Texas-based crew members and local residents, as well as spurring on-site spending at local small businesses. And as the Texas Film Commission celebrates 50 years of service, I am especially proud of all they have accomplished in helping communities like Denison market their unique local appeal and achieve economic recovery through media production.”
“Denison has a rich history and the Film Friendly Texas designation further enriches the Texoma region and supports the growth of the local economy,” said Senator Drew Springer.
