Hello World! My name is Debra De Graw and I am the Film Commissioner for the County of Mendocino. Our film office is housed at the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center, in Fort Bragg, California. I am also the CEO of the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, and wearing two hats keeps me busy. I love it!
We became a film office back in the late 1990’s, and represent the county, thanks to the determination and passion of Cammie Conlon, who played Little Bonnie Blue Butler in Gone With the Wind. She was the Marketing Coordinator for the Chamber at the time and she ran the film office. She worked with the incorporated cities of the county (four of them) and the board of supervisors to be recognized as the official film office for the county to the California Film Commission.
Mendocino County continues to be active with AFCI (Association of Film Commissioners International) and the FLICS (Film Liaisons In California Statewide).
