The Division of Special Events works directly with the Greater Cleveland Film Commission on all commercial film, television, video, and photography projects conducted within the City of Cleveland.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission helps facilitate the ongoing promotion and production of film, television, and other related media within Northeast Ohio. 

Northeast Ohio is an ideal location for film production. Cleveland is centrally located between Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New York on the coast of Lake Erie and along the Cuyahoga River. The area celebrates four beautiful seasons and offers a unique variety of settings, including period-designed architecture and a wide array of scenic neighborhoods ranging from mansions to Amish Country.
