Sponsorship

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is integral to the growth and progress of Northeast Ohio.

You might not feel the excitement of a movie being filmed without seeing a movie truck where you live or work, but you can be sure that your community is impacted. Hotels, restaurants, dry cleaners, lumberyards, printing companies and many other businesses of all types profit, as well as people in your community who may be a set designer, accountant, insurance broker, actor, actress or other production professional of some kind.

GCFC does not receive any funds from the media productions we work to attract here. We rely solely on contributions to advance our mission.

When Tom Hanks joined us for our annual “Behind the Camera” Benefit, he echoed the importance of building a film and media industry here and now. Like us, Tom thinks Northeast Ohio is an ideal location for film and media production and knows what our region can offer to directors and producers. Directors and Cleveland natives Anthony and Joe Russo support GCFC because they know Ivan Schwarz and GCFC “have been instrumental in nurturing the continued growth of Cleveland as a filmmaking destination.”

We have the support of Tom Hanks and the Russo Brothers, now we need you!

We can’t do it alone. We need to have the support of the businesses, foundations and institutions that are the engine that powers this region. By becoming a sponsor, you are making a statement that your organization is invested in the growth of this new industry that is part of the ongoing renaissance of Northeast Ohio. Let’s add to the list of projects that have filmed here like, “The Fate of the Furious”, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, “Little Evil”, “The Bye Bye Man” and “Draft Day”.

In return for helping us bring jobs and economic opportunity to Northeast Ohio, you’ll receive exclusive opportunities for events like movie screenings, wrap parties, and tickets to our annual “Behind The Camera” fundraiser.

Thank you for doing your part! For questions, please contact Ellen Grevey at 216-344-7471 or [email protected].
