The Greater Cleveland Film Commission (GCFC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to create jobs and economic impact for Northeast Ohio through a vibrant film and media arts industry. We pursue our mission by advocating for the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit (OMPTC), attracting productions to our region, and training the local workforce.

Since 2009, the GCFC has attracted over 300 productions, most recently Netflix’s White Noise and the LeBron James biopic Shooting Stars. These projects have created 7,092 full-time equivalent jobs and brought $1.38 billion into Ohio’s economy.

YOU can benefit from our work.  The GCFC connects cast and crew talent directly to production opportunities by offering workshops, an affordable online FilmSkills training program, and a GCFC internship program!
