Become a Member

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is a community-funded organization. We do not receive any proceeds from the productions that film in Northeast Ohio.

That’s why, as a 501(c)3 social profit organization, we rely heavily on the generosity of people like YOU to continue in our mission to create jobs and bring business to our region. GCFC Members are critical to the success of our mission.

Your investment will empower us to advocate for legislation that drives production spending to Ohio, attract media productions to choose this region as their base of operations, and educate the local workforce with the skills to fill the local jobs in this industry.


Become a GCFC Member during the #GivingTuesday campaign period of November 28 – December 31, 2023, and you will receive a special ten (10) percent discount.  Share the link with a friend, family member, or colleague so that they can support our workforce and economic development efforts.  Or sign them up yourself as a holiday gift!
