The Portland Film Office facilitates filming in Portland for productions of all sizes, captures economic impact for the city, promotes Portland as a film location, and supports the industry’s success locally and internationally. The Portland Film Office is a collaboration of the Mayor’s Office, Prosper Portland and dedicated resources within city bureaus.
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 flourish and create local middle-wage jobs, offering new opportunities for Portland residents to work within the industry.
Prosper Portland and the Portland Film Office partner with OregonMade Creative Foundation on the Portland Post Production Grant program, which invites local filmmakers to apply for funding designed to encourage the completion of a local feature-length project and position producers to build toward larger, more resourced productions. The grant supports the professional development of small, local filmmakers by providing funds for activities including sound design, scoring, editing, color correction, closed captioning, VFX, and music clearances using local post-production houses.
We answer questions from Portland residents and business owners about on-location filming in Portland neighborhoods.
