Our Mission

MPTF supports our entertainment community in living and aging well, with dignity and purpose, and in helping each other in times of need.

A Spirit of Philanthropy & Volunteerism

MPTF is supported by the philanthropy and volunteer services of fellow entertainment industry members. Our industry is unique and we have a history of taking care of our own like no other industry in the world. People are at the heart of what we do each and every day and it’s because of the extraordinary generosity of countless donors, families, and volunteers, that we can deliver services to thousands of people each month.

Our Logo

MPTF has had a range of wonderful logo designs throughout its history. In 2012, MPTF refreshed its logo as part of a vibrant new look. We retained the film iconography of our recent logos as a nod to our legacy. In so many ways and for many years to come, film will represent our industry and our community. Our new logo is built from clips that celebrate change and color and feel more like film: flexible, fluid, and transparent. It’s a modern interpretation of film imbued with the spirit of a new generation that embraces the future we are creating.
