NextGen Community

For our craft. For our legacy. For the magic that is Hollywood itself.

You know how special it is to work in the entertainment industry. We are people with a lot of heart.

MPTF is a community of entertainment professionals dedicated to helping our own. MPTF provides social services, child and elder care, financial support, insurance and more to those in need. So no one in the entertainment community has to go without.

We are part of the legacy that is MPTF.

MPTF NextGen is a community that realizes we all play our part in supporting our community. We are dedicated to raising awareness and creating impact for MPTF and the entertainment industry community that it serves. We do so by educating and engaging our peers, forming strategic partnerships, and serving as ambassadors within the entertainment community. MPTF NextGen looks to support this mission through initiatives built on the following pillars:

Educate.  Celebrate.  Serve.

We EDUCATE the community about MPTF’s mission

We CELEBRATE the achievements of our peers and those who’ve gone before us

And we SERVE.   We are an industry that takes care of our own

“I was raised to believe that as a community we should be judged by how we take care of people who can’t take care of themselves. This is our community. This is our commitment: to make sure that MPTF is still standing strong for generations to come.” –George Clooney

“I am proud to be a part of an industry that supports every single person. It doesn’t matter where you are on the call sheet, what role you play. We are a family.” -Hugh Jackman
