Motion Picture Association of America

In 1922, motion picture studios formed the organization now known as the Motion Picture Association to protect and support the nascent film industry. Since that time, the MPA has served as the leading advocate of the film, television, and streaming industry around the world, advancing the business and art of storytelling, protecting the creative and artistic freedoms of storytellers, and bringing entertainment and inspiration to audiences worldwide.

Today, the stories that define our lives and shape our world are brought to life by the global creative community, including the creators and artists working in American film and television. The Motion Picture Association fosters an economic and cultural enterprise by advocating for policies that recognize the power of stories, reward creators, and allow the association to produce, distribute, and protect the creative content audiences love.
