The Suffolk County Film Commission is your liaison into the diverse cinematic landscape of Eastern Long Island— from the tranquil milieu of our farmland and vineyards to the inviting mysteries of our historic villages and mansions.

The Suffolk County Film Commission assists in locating the perfect setting for your production, and will serve as your convenient conduit for all of your production needs: assisting in acquiring the appropriate film permits, putting you in contact with talented local production crews, and helping you find the best local lodging and catering services available for your production.

We also aid in accessing all of the production incentives that filming in New York State provides.  Simply put, it is our mission to ensure that your experience producing a film, television program, or any other media in Suffolk County is convenient and rewarding.
