About Kent Film TV Board

Picture of a boardroom

When the Kent Film Office was set up in 2006, key industry and related persons from the county were invited to join the Kent Film & Television Board to advise on industry trends, requirements and how the film office could best support local professionals and businesses.

The group further acted as ambassadors encouraging more film and television productions to use Kent for the economic benefits to the county.

Board meetings were held once a year and members volunteered their time and support.

In May 2015, it was decided that the Kent Film Office was securely established within the industry and the Kent Film and Television Board was dissolved in favour of working with smaller advisory groups on various specific projects.

The Kent Film Office would like to thank all board members who supported and assisted in developing the Kent Film Office and making it one of the premier film commissions in the country.
