The mission statement will allow the organization to have a clear and effective message that will guide decision making, while the vision statement ensures that all the decisions made are properly aligned with the organization's overall objectives and make sure everyone is working towards a common goal.
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 to attract film production to and grow the motion picture industry in the region.
Our Goals are threefold. First, we serve to grow the local film and video industry in every way possible, recognizing its huge economic impact in job creation and its unparalleled public relations effects for the region. Second, we serve to attract film & video production to the region, including everything from feature films to TV commercials to music videos and industrial films. Finally, we provide the producer free assistance with parking, permits, labor, and locations, and generally act as the liaison between the production and the local community, cutting red tape as we go. A non-profit economic development agency committed to the growth of the regional film and video production industry, GPFO has been responsible for impacting the local economy with more than $5B since 1992.
