Dedicated to producing superior films made in the Sunshine State.

Although the state of Florida ended filmmaking incentives — causing it to drop from the nation’s third top filming location to below the top 20 — it hasn’t stopped our team from believing the Sunshine State can be home to a great platform for investment in commercial filmmaking.

Welcome Message

on behalf of the Group Advisory Board of Florida Film Ventures, LLC

Dear Fellow Supporters,
Movies are a major industry. But, unfortunately, no longer in Florida. Hence, we need to bring film production back to Florida. That's why a diverse group of entrepreneurs, business owners and movie veterans joined together to establish an independent film production company for projects which will be produced on Florida ground. This creates jobs, benefits local businesses, features our State's unique landscape, the people and our heritage.

For high-net-worth investors, it's not a question of if you should invest into alternative investments. Rather, it's "which alternative investment asset type" will work best for your particular situation. Also, adding high-yielding satellites to your portfolio could enhance the overall performace. An investment into motion-picutre royalties could be an interesting "additive" to your existing portfolio.
