GPFO, first established in 1985 as a part of Philadelphia city  government, continues to reside within city offices. In 1992, we became a  regional economic development agency, incorporating as the Greater  Philadelphia Film Office, a Pennsylvania non profit corporation, in  July, 2000.


Our Goals are threefold. First, we serve to grow the local film and  video industry in every way possible, recognizing its huge economic  impact in job creation and its unparalleled public relations effects for  the region. Second, we serve to attract film & video production to  the region, including everything from feature films to TV commercials to  music videos and industrial films. Finally, we provide the producer  free assistance with parking, permits, labor, and locations, and  generally act as the liaison between the production and the local  community, cutting red tape as we go. A non-profit economic development  agency committed to the growth of the regional film and video production  industry, GPFO has been responsible for impacting the local economy  with nearly $6B since 1992.
