Northeastern Pennsylvania more commonly referred to as the Pocono Region offers a wealth of resources for the entertainment industry. This area has a rich film history. One of the first silent films shot in the United States was filmed in Milford Pennsylvania in 1912. The Informer was produced and directed by D.W. Griffith and starred Mary Pickford.
The Pocono Region offers thousands of acres of forested and open space, historic buildings (ranging from farm houses to stone mansions), picturesque rivers, and quaint towns. Only 90 minutes from New York City, the area has become home to top names in the industry.
