BE A PART OF THE BIGGER PICTURE. JOIN THE LMGI TODAY.

    Respect.  Access.  Support.  Connection.  Celebration.  Sharing resources and information.  Advocacy.  Mentoring.  And benefits we love to share.  That’s what the LMGI is here for — and more. 

    When you join the Location Managers Guild International, you become part of a global tribe of amazing creative people who are passionate about our work – and devoted to promoting the importance of our contribution to our industry.  You join the elite of our profession.  It’s a community in which we can share our universal experiences and concerns, and harness our potential to make an even greater impact.  Through participation and volunteering for LMGI, we can further elevate our role in production, our respect in the industry, and expand opportunities for education and growth.  Your participation, energy and ideas are critical as we continue to broaden our reach as an influential guild.

    The LMGI exists to promote and celebrate our craft – and the people in it.  Through the efforts of the guild, we now have our own category in IMDB, where we were once relegated to “Miscellaneous Crew.”  Our members have been accepted into the prestigious Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  We have become the go-to media advisors on location issues for journalists from the Times of London to the Wall Street Journal and the Hollywood Reporter.

    Once you are accepted as a member, you claim your identity as a location professional among the best of the best.  The LMGI becomes a part of your personal brand.  As a member, your vote determines the LMGI award nominees and winners showcased at our annual gala.  Our awards shine a spotlight on the best location-driven productions around the world and garner international press.  Membership also gives you the opportunity to volunteer – one of the best ways to connect with colleagues and raise your profile with other industry pros – as you give back and make things happen.

    You deserve an organization that believes in you and your invaluable creative contribution.  Transform your career, your life and your industry.  You belong here.
