Texas Film Commission

The Texas Film Commission (TFC) is a media partner with the West Texas Film Festival. 

Created in 1971 by Texas Governor Preston Smith, who found that it was, “in the social, economic and educational interest of Texas to encourage the development of the film-communication industry”. Since then, the TFC has expanded to include the television, commercial, video game, animation and visual effects industries.
