LA: Toronto/Ontario on Location in LA
Ontario’s Screen-Based Industries Roll Out The Red Carpet In Los Angeles
OMDC, in partnership with the City of Toronto, FilmOntario and CASO, recently presented the inaugural TORONTO/ONTARIO ON LOCATION IN LA event, designed to showcase Toronto and Ontario’s advantages as a world-class location for film, TV, post-production, VFX and animation production.
Held on February 22 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in LA, the full-day event featured a trade show-style marketplace for Ontario-based suppliers to connect with clients and presentations on the advantages of producing, doing animation, VFX and post-production in the province that is now known as the “gold standard” among film commissions worldwide. A key component of the day was the almost 100 pre-arranged one-on-one meetings between the delegate companies and LA clients. The event wrapped up with a well-attended networking reception.
Senior representatives from over 40 of Ontario’s leading industry suppliers, producers and screen-based companies attended. Production and post-production, equipment suppliers, VFX and animation studios, studio operators, labour organizations, financial services companies, as well many industry support companies all enjoyed the day.
