Please help me raise the funding that's vital to the longevity of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.
Just last year, over 400 productions took place across the Philadelphia area. With consistent film production work, GPFO attracts and facilitates over 1,500 local jobs a year across a wide variety of business sectors. We have stimulated over $6 billion in the local economy since 1992.
Indirect spending from the film industry benefits businesses across the city, affecting tourism, construction, material suppliers, hospitality, restaurants, recreation, and more. This spending generates tax revenue for the city at large.
Like many in our industry, GPFO has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. After losing major sources of funding, GPFO is looking to you to help keep our offices open, so we can continue our work in maintaining a thriving film industry in Philadelphia.
If there is no opportunity for recovery, it will cost hundreds of highly skilled workers their ability to continue to work and provide for their families.
This is a fight to save our livelihoods and our future.
Please consider making a donation today, as timing will be instrumental in saving the Philadelphia film industry.
