Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins has named State Board of Equalization Member Fiona Ma, CPA, to serve on the California Film Commission.

The appointment is effective immediately, with her term of service being two years, or until a replacement is named by the speaker.

The California Film Commission was established to “enhance California’s status as a leader in the motion picture, television and commercial production.”

The commission supports productions of all sizes and budgets; advises productions on film and TV tax credits that they may be eligible for; as well as providing support in production issues like securing permits and shooting locations.

“California is home to Hollywood, mega stars, iconic landmarks, a highly diverse talent pool and great weather. I look forward to actively promoting our brand image as a world class filming destination,” said Ma. “The film industry creates so many jobs, and generates so much economic activity for our state, and I am committed to working with policy makers, industry leaders and community leaders across California to help strengthen the industry and create new jobs for Californians.”

“Fiona will be a great addition to the film commission. Her service in the Assembly, her expertise on tax issues, and her leadership in helping preserve and expand the film tax credit and means that she will be an outstanding voice for California’s most high-profile industry,” said Speaker Atkins.
