FINALISTS VIE FOR COVETED 2022 CALIFORNIA ON LOCATION AWARDS
Film Liaisons in California Statewide (FLICS) is pleased to announce finalists for the 27th Annual California on Location Awards (COLAs), which will be presented on December 4th at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City. The COLAs recognize location managers, public employees and other professionals who help facilitate on-location filming across the Golden State.
This year’s COLAs come amid a surge in California-based production, as projects of all types and sizes are bringing jobs and economic opportunity to regions statewide. This surge is due to factors ranging from increased demand by streaming services to the success of California’s film and TV tax credit program.
Current COLA nominees participating in the state’s tax credit program include studio features “Babylon,” “Don’t Worry Darling” and “White Men Can’t Jump,” indie features “80 for Brady” and “American Society,” and TV series “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty.” "We are so proud to recognize this year's finalists for their exceptional work across California and their vital contribution to the state's economic engine," said Sabrina Jurisich, co-chair of the COLA and FLICS President. "We are also excited to celebrate with our friends and colleagues again in person."
Produced by the Film Liaisons in California Statewide (FLICS), the COLAs have grown to become the largest awards program focused on recognizing the work of California location professionals. Finalists and winners are determined via a vote by members of FLICS, past COLA winners, and a steering committee of Teamsters Local 399 members. Award categories range from studio and independent feature films to TV series, commercials, reality, and music videos. Awards are also presented in multiple Public Employee of the Year categories.
Presenting Sponsors for the 2022 California on Location Awards are the Antelope Valley Film Office & Lancaster Film Office, Board Brothers Location Services, Golden Oak Ranch and Teamsters Local 399. Gold Level Sponsors include the California Film Commission, El Dorado Film Office, FilmL.A., Film SLO CAL, PPS/PTC, Quixote, Riverfront Stages Inc., Riverfront Locations and the Santa Clarita Film Office.
