About

ROCKFORD FILM OFFICE is here to assist filmmakers in streamlining production activities in and around the area. The city itself has been established as "Filmmaker Friendly" and wants to continue to expand its offerings when it comes to the art of filmmaking. We have worked closely with the City of Rockford to ensure ease of permit procurement so that nothing holds up production and there is clear communication and support.
