The Portland Film Office is a collaboration of the Mayor’s Office, Prosper Portland and dedicated resources within city bureaus. 


We are the first point of connection between filmmakers and the city. We help productions navigate permits and procedures and connect with other city bureaus like Parks and Transportation. 


The film office serves both the industry and the city. It demonstrates the City’s prioritization of an industry with enormous economic impact on Portland. Our goal is to provide maximum benefit using minimal resources, so our work approach is to be nimble, efficient, and effective.


The film office fosters public-private partnership, capturing opportunities for filmmaking in Portland and streamlining the public services that support industry work.
