Film Columbus Seeks Executive Director

Film Columbus (The Greater Columbus Film Commission) promotes the city of Columbus and the state of Ohio as a filmmaking destination.

Thomas McClure, executive director since 2012 resigned in December to focus on other projects.

“Thomas McClure served the film commission and Columbus well during his tenure and I am grateful for his contributions,” said Chris Hamel, President of the Film Columbus Board. “With so many great things happening in Columbus, I am confident the new executive director will lead a new era of growth and innovation for the film commission.”

The executive director will raise awareness of Columbus and the Greater Columbus area as a destination for productions of all sizes and promote the Ohio Tax Credit, one of the most aggressive in the country, for productions. The ideal candidate for this position will have good leadership skills, experience working with a non-profit board and a broad knowledge of filmmaking.

Interested candidates should send their cover letter and resume to Chris Hamel, Board President, Film Columbus, [email protected] by February 28.

John Daugherty, formerly a partner in Vital Companies, is serving as interim director.

Film Columbus recently moved their offices to 100 E. Broad St., Suite 2250, sharing space with the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

Film Columbus is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the Greater Columbus Area and Central Ohio as a prime filming destination while serving as a resource hub for the visiting and local productions. Film Columbus is grateful to the City of Columbus and the Greater Columbus Arts Council for support.
