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. A non-profit economic development agency committed to the growth of the regional film production industry, GPFO has been responsible for impacting the local economy with more than $3 billion since our inception in 1985.
