The winners of the 19th annual California On Location Awards (COLA) have been announced by the Film Liaisons In California Statewide (FLICS), the awards program producing organization. The 2013 COLA event was hosted by the historic Beverly Hilton Hotel of Pasadena on November 3.
Over the past 19 years COLA has grown to become recognized throughout the film and television production industry as the premier live awards ceremony saluting location professionals and production companies for excellence while working on location in California. Public employees are also recognized in various awards categories for delivering outstanding service and on-location support to the industry.
COLA is a signature event of the Film Liaisons In California Statewide (FLICS), a non-profit organization of 43 regional film offices and film commissions throughout the state. Along with numerous other efforts centered on promoting California’s entertainment industry, the members of FLICS provide valuable location support and resources to the state’s production industry professionals. The ongoing work of FLICS and creation of the COLA program has raised the public and industry profile and recognition of location professionals who contribute a vital service to the filming of feature films, TV shows, commercials and other media content.
COLA finalists are selected from an extensive list of nominees primarily submitted by FLICS member offices and film industry groups to a panel of judges composed of accomplished film and TV production professionals.
