Yvonne Boice was recently appointed by Governor Rick Scott to serve as a member of the Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory Council. As part of an elite 17 member team, Boice will focus on developing, marketing and promoting Florida’s entertainment industry.

“It is a tremendous honor to be selected by Governor Scott for this prestigious appointment,” said Boice. “For over two decades with the PBIFF, I have championed Palm Beach County’s leading role in the film industry and have advocated for increased educational opportunities. With this new appointment, I am enthusiastically looking forward to working with the council on expanding the industry’s growth throughout Florida.”
The purpose of the council is to serve as an advisory body to the Department of Economic Opportunity and to the Florida Office of Film and Entertainment to provide these offices with industry insight and expertise related to developing, marketing, promoting, and providing service to Florida’s entertainment industry.
