TRENTON, N.J. (June 5, 2024) – The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is extending the deadline of its Request for Information (RFI) seeking insight from film and digital media production industry stakeholders on best practices for sector workforce program design, parameters, and details for the development of a future $5 million NJEDA film and digital media production workforce training program. The deadline to submit questions will be extended to Wednesday, June 12, 2024, and the deadline for responses will be extended to Friday, June 28, 2024. The RFI can be found here.

WHAT:            The NJEDA is seeking information from respondents on the scope and characteristics of effective workforce training programs in anticipation of creating or supporting programs and initiatives to support workforce development for film and digital media production occupations such as production assistants, production accountants, studio managers, carpenters, grips, electricians, set-dressers, wardrobe assistants, and script supervisors.

The information gathered through this RFI will help the NJEDA:

  • better understand the film and digital media workforce in New Jersey and any existing workforce gaps;
  • gain insight into the industry’s recruitment and training processes;
  • gather information on teaching programs that include instructors who are currently employed in film and digital media production that create teaching plans focused on imparting on-set best techniques and practices;
  • collect information on best practices and approaches to support training and development needs; and
  • learn about existing successful national and international models that prepare workers for careers in film and digital media production.

In line with Governor Phil Murphy’s mission to strengthen economic opportunity for every New Jerseyan, the NJEDA will also seek information on how underserved populations can be supported through the film and digital media industry and on best methods for encouraging the inclusion of minorities, women, and veterans in future film and digital media workforce training programs.

WHO:              The RFI seeks responses from interested stakeholders in the film and digital media production industry. Respondents do not need to be located within New Jersey to provide input.

WHEN:           All questions must be submitted in writing no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, via e-mail to workforceinnovation@njeda.gov.
