The future of the film industry in our region is threatened.  But the local film industry creates family sustaining jobs for a huge base of production professionals, support businesses and their employees, and provides outstanding content for and about our city and region.  Unique challenges are threatening the ability of our local workforce to be able to live and work in Philadelphia while supporting their families.  This rally is to unite and galvanize our industry and elected officials into addressing the urgency of supporting the film, TV, commercial, and multi-media industry of Philadelphia.
