A San Francisco Film Commission Appointments, Proposition C ballot measure is on the June 8, 2010 ballot in San Francisco.[1]

San Francisco has a Film Commission. The Film Commission is composed of 11 commissioners. At present, all of the 11 commissioners are appointed by the mayor. If voters approve Proposition C, then the appointments would be divided up, with the mayor appointing six commissioners, while the Board of Supervisors would appoint five.

Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier sponsored the charter amendment.[2]

Newsom clash

Mayor Gavin Newsom has recently clashed with the Film Commission. In December 2009, Newsom fired Stefanie Coyote as executive director of the Film Commission. This move drew criticism from the 11-member Film Commission.[3]

Film Commission

According to the Film Commission's website, it is a public agency that "...works to develop, recognize and promote film activities in San Francisco. We work to promote the San Francisco Bay Area as a film destination while also working with the local film community to support local projects with significant ties to San Francisco."
