AMMAN — The Royal Film Commission (RFC) is among nominees for “Outstanding Film Commission” in the 2015 Location Managers Guild of America (LMGA) awards.

The award — given on a local, national or international level — recognises “exemplary work performed above and beyond the usual service provided to location professionals on a specific feature film, television series or commercial”, according to the LMGA’s website.

The other nominees are the Chicago Film Office, the City of Long Beach Office of Special Events and Filming, Film in Iceland, and the Oregon Governor’s Office of Film and Television.

The winners will be announced on March 7, according to the guild, which is “an organisation of experienced career professionals in the motion picture, television, commercial and print production industries”. 

“Location managers and scouts are vital members of the design team for film, television, commercials, music videos and print advertising. Our primary job is to find the settings that best represent the visual concept of the producer, director and production designer,” the LMGA website said.

Established “with a vision to develop an internationally competitive Jordanian film industry”, the RFC is a member of the Association for Film Commissioners International (AFCI). 

The AFCI is the official professional and educational organisation for film commissions. Its members assist feature, television, commercial, industrial and stills production throughout the world, according to the RFC website.

The RFC is a financially and administratively autonomous government organisation led by a board of commissioners chaired by HRH Prince Ali.
