Film Works

Film Works is about reminding ourselves how valuable the entertainment industry is to Californians, and not just those living and working in Los Angeles. In no other state or country on Earth is the film industry such a pillar of the state economy or bedrock of community life. In large part that?s because the economic well-being of all Californian?s is tied to the state?s entertainment industry, whether or not we consider ourselves ?in the biz.?

Film Works is supported by a coalition of industry stakeholders from small businesses, local companies, labor organizations, community leaders and concerned citizens who want to take an active role in strengthening community ties to the entertainment industry and keeping California the world?s premier place to make films, television shows and commercials.
