Event Details

Every day, on any given sidewalk in the Philadelphia area, film crews are doubling as pedestrians! And why not? There is no fee to film on the sidewalk in Philadelphia – one of the many benefits of shooting on our streets.

But how do you navigate filming on private property? What is the process for permission in designated permitted areas like Fairmount Park and the National Park Service? How do you clear the way for a smooth production wherever you need to be??

Come ready to ask questions. These questions and others will be answered by production professionals and City Officials.


Free but must RSVP

The Greater Philadelphia Film Office (GPFO) is a "film commission" representing southeastern Pennsylvania that officially serves the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.

We are a member of the Association of Film Commissions International (AFCI). 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 in 2000 as the Greater Philadelphia Film Office, a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation.
