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.
GCFC was the driving force behind the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit (OMPTC) in 2009. Since then GCFC has attracted over 300 productions. The most recent project, the Netflix film “White Noise” (starring Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, and Don Cheadle), filmed across Northeast Ohio for 21 weeks, employing 921 crew and 3,000 extras, booked over 36,000 hotel room nights, and spent an estimated $106.6 million in the region.
Due to our efforts projects like this have created 6,192 full-time equivalent jobs and brought over $1.2 billion into Ohio’s economy.
GCFC connects cast and crew talent directly to production opportunities and invests in a strong local workforce by presenting workshops, seminars, FilmSkills training and internships, designed to give local talent the education, experience and professional connections to succeed in the film industry. GCFC works tirelessly to expand the film industry in Northeast Ohio, train and support a local workforce in order to generate real, sustainable opportunities that attract and retain talent.
