Some of the most dedicated supporters in California’s fight against runaway production will be among the honorees at the 23rd Annual California On Location Awards, which will be presented Sunday, December 17 at The Beverly Hilton’s famed International Ballroom.
The California On Location Awards recognize location managers, public employees and other film professionals who help expedite and guide on-location production across the Golden State. The 2017 awards will be take place amid a spirit of growing optimism, as results from California’s expanded Film & Television Tax Credit Program 2.0 show promise in reaffirming California’s status as the world’s film production capital.
