CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE ON LOCATION WORLDWIDE

    THE 2019 LOCATION MANAGERS GUILD
    INTERNATIONAL AWARDS

    THE LMGI AWARDS are an internationally recognized celebration of the outstanding contributions of location professionals in feature films, television and commercial advertising.  The Awards spotlight our craft, honoring productions in which the creative use of filming locations set the tone, enrich the character and inspire the storytelling narrative.  Film commissions are celebrated for their exemplary service and additional honorees include recipients of the Eva Monley Award, the Humanitarian Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Trailblazer Award.

    This year brought the LMGI our biggest challenge to date!  We received over one hundred qualified submissions from around the world, each one better than the next in its capacity to demonstrate how locations enrich the art of filmmaking.  Refining these submissions to a field of finalists was arduous and challenging.  We heartily applaud them all — and wish each and all of the nominees below the best of luck!
