Our goals are to facilitate filming in Portland for productions of all sizes, capture economic impact for the city, promote Portland as a film location, and support the industry’s success locally and internationally.



The Portland Film Office is a bridge between public and private entities. We support production groups by facilitating their path through city agencies, and we act as the city’s internal industry expert to protect public interests.


We seek to foster an environment that allows Portland’s film industry to prosper and offer new opportunities for Portland residents to work within the industry, creating middle wage jobs for Portland residents.
