From two-time Ophir Award-winning director Ran Tal (Children of the Sun), THE MUSEUM is an intimate glimpse into the world of the Israel Museum (Israel’s national museum in Jerusalem) and the diverse group of people who make it special. Stunning shots of pristine galleries and behind-the-scenes looks at the bustling activity of restoration and curation serve as a love letter to art, history, and their dedicated stewards.

THE MUSEUM also paints a vivid portrait of the communities that form around these works of art by capturing subjects as they engage and interact with the museum’s contents. Though each person’s experience is unique, there is a universality in connecting with a work of art, be it children finger-painting their response to a work of art or an adult reflecting on the ghosts he or she recognizes in a wartime painting. Through all of its slices of life, THE MUSEUM invites the audience beyond its walls to celebrate the wide-ranging narrative of Jewish perseverance and the vitality of Israeli culture in all of its splendid forms.

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.
