Filmmaker and activist, FRANCINE DeCOURSEY’s ON LOCATION Production Services has supplied Locations, Cast, Crew, and Support Services for over 100 feature film and television productions, making her a respected resource for anything related to production in the Southeast. A sample of her film and TV credits include Writers, One Tree Hill, Freedom Song, Twilight Zone, When We Were Colored, Touched by an Angel, Black Dog, etc.

A Producer of Independent films, documentaries, educational, promotional and political campaigns, and a leading force in the Independent Film movement, she initiated and helped launch ‘NC VISIONS,’ a PBS–TV showcase of North Carolina independent filmmakers, which ran for 20 years, broadcasting over 400 NC Indie films. DeCoursey has produced Southeastern Media Institute Film & Technology Expos, Future Arts Regional Conferences, taught film classes at Duke University, UNCW, UNCG, CFCC, community colleges, high schools, and film festivals across the Southeast. National public speaker and regular guest on regional media, and now leading the ‘Focus on Film’ Initiative, DeCoursey’s 'Women United' and 'Calling All Colors' initiatives continue to demonstrate her commitment to empowering women and cultural diversity in the media…and the power of media for positive social change.

Honored as a ‘Women of Distinction’ by Ladies of the Cape Fear’s ‘Women of Hope’ for her activism and community leadership, Ms. DeCoursey is also the recipient of the Outstanding North Carolinian of the Year Award, the YWCA’s ‘Woman of Achievement’ Award, UNC-Greensboro ‘Distinguished Alumni’ Award, and the NC Commission on the Status of Women’s ‘Women in Success.’ As a life-long advocate for social justice, and a mentor/ adopted mother to a struggling family for 30 years, she was honored with the Bahai’s ‘Cultural Diversity Leadership’ Award, and the Governor’s Award for her impact on the lives of women and minorities in the state.
