BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Bonnie King, Film Commissioner for the Space Coast Film and Television Office, a Committee of the Brevard County Tourist Development Council, has been named President of Film Florida.
It was announced at the Film Florida Annual Meeting, along with the entire Film Florida Board of Directors for 2017-2018.
Film Florida is a state-wide not-for-profit entertainment production trade association that serves a leadership role in Florida’s film, TV, production and digital media/tech industry by representing all aspects of the business including film commissions, industry, labor, associations and education.
“It is a privilege to serve as president of Film Florida,” said King.
“I look forward to working side by side with industry professionals as we seek opportunities to strengthen the film, TV and digital media industry. Florida is open for business and competing for high wage jobs in the film, television and digital media industry and we plan on continuing to spread that message.”
King works closely with local associations for independent filmmakers in the Space Coast area and her responsibilities include developing film, television and print opportunities for the Space Coast.
This includes feature films, television shows, commercials, music videos and fashion photography.
She also serves on high school advisory boards for hospitality and entertainment in Merritt Island and Rockledge, sponsors the Melbourne Independent Film Festival and serves on the Meetings and Conventions Committee for Visit Florida.
King started her career as a Radio Broadcaster where she “broke the sound barrier” by being the first woman in Brevard County to host a Rock-N-Roll radio show. She then worked as marketing director for a regional shopping mall before joining the Space Coast Office of Tourism/Film where she assists the director in public relations activities, marketing and advertising, and special projects for the Tourist Development Council.
She has been involved with Film Florida for more than 15 years, most recently serving as second vice president.
“I enthusiastically support Bonnie King and believe that her courage, tenacity and vision will continue to show the far reaching benefits our industry has on the state of Florida including creating jobs, spurring economic development and generating tourism,” said Film Florida Immediate Past President Kelly Paige.
