promotes filmmaking in Oakland


The Oakland Film Office exists as a means of bringing film production to the City of Oakland. Like many film offices and commissions the overall goal is to have a positive economic impact on the city, partly by brining in jobs and partly by raising the cultural awareness of it. The office issues film permits and works with city film festivals.
