The goal of the Department of Cultural Affairs is to enhance the quality of life for Los Angeles' 4 million residents and 26 million annual visitors. The Department accomplishes this goal by generating and supporting high-quality arts and cultural experiences. We ensure access to those experiences through grant making, marketing, development, communication, and building relationships with our community partners. Our challenge is to be a catalyst for the delivery of art, culture, and heritage to every neighborhood in the City of Los Angeles.
Film Works L.A. is a stakeholder-driven education and outreach campaign centered around filming in Los Angeles. It's also an effort to combat the problem of runaway production, which is when film and television productions leave California to shoot in other states and/or nations.
Film Works is about reminding ourselves how valuable the entertainment industry is to the Los Angeles region. In no other place on Earth is this industry such a pillar of the local economy or bedrock of community life. In large part that's because the economic well-being of all Angelenos is tied to the local 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 Los Angeles the entertainment production capital of the world.
Film Works is coordinated by FilmL.A., which is a private, 501(c)4 not-for-profit organization established for the public benefit. FilmL.A.oversees the permitting process for on-location motion picture, television and commercial production under contract to a host of public-sector clients in the Los Angeles region.
