Local independent filmmakers could find themselves in a low-cost office space on July 1 thanks to the San Francisco Film Commission’s new project.

The commission’s SF Film Collective will provide affordable office space to local filmmakers to help create more film production in the city and nurture “home-grown” talent, commission officials said.

To be considered, filmmakers must be at least 21 years old and actively engaged in a film, video, television, or multimedia project.

“We see this as a way to not only support local filmmaking talent, but to shine a light on San Francisco as a city which welcomes independent productions,” executive director Susannah Greason Robbins said in a statement.

Participants must either be a resident of the city or working on a project that is directly related to San Francisco.

The office space is located at 134A Golden Gate Ave. Twelve offices are available and the space offers a common area, conference room, and a communal kitchen.

Applications are due by June 1 and can be found at www.filmsf.org.

Spaces will be awarded on June 8 for July 1 occupancy. Anyone interested in touring the space should call (415) 554-6241.
