We are saddened to announce that GPFO has been eliminated from the City budget, but is still committed to pushing forward, maintaining staff and all of our services, which will have resounding benefits to the film industry and many other local businesses as well.

The City of Philadelphia is currently facing great economic hardship, and the Greater Philadelphia Film Office wishes to be a part of its ongoing recovery efforts.

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.

We need members of the film industry, business owners, and supporters of Philadelphia arts and culture to help us now raise the $130,000 that is vital to the longevity of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.

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.
