Recognized Film & Music Friendly
Stephenville City and Erath County Designated Film Friendly in late 2019 by Governor Greg Abbott
AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today announced that the City of Stephenville, having completed the multi-step training and certification process, has been designated a Film Friendly Texas community by the Texas Film Commission, which helps to grow local jobs and local economies by promoting the Lone Star State as the premier destination for film, television, commercial, animation, visual effects and video game production. With the City of Stephenville’s certification, and Erath County’s initiative to submit location photos for inclusion in the TFC locations database and pass administratively enforceable filming guidelines through Commissioners Court, all communities in Erath County, including unincorporated communities, have now earned the Film Friendly Texas Designation.
“I congratulate the City of Stephenville and Erath County on earning the Film Friendly Texas designation,” said Governor Abbott. “Texas has much to offer, and 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 I am proud of all that the Texas Film Commission has accomplished in helping communities like Stephenville to grow their local economy."
