Film Shasta is Moving Forward
May 4, 2021As we move into the next season, I wanted to share some great opportunities and exciting updates!Since our last email, two new direct flights have been added to the Redding (RDD) schedule with service from Burbank (starting May 20 - with flights as low as $19/each way...yes $19 dollars) and Seattle (starting June 17). The flight services from Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO) to Redding continue.In addition to our skies getting some new views, our downtown and skyline is looking a little different. For the last 49 years, several streets were fully closed to house a mall. This spring, the streets reopened filled with murals, new art installations, newly built and reimagined buildings, and fresh energy. One of the great features where old meets new is the I.O.O.F Hall (built in 1888 and is the oldest brick structure in Redding) facing one of the newest buildings in downtown Redding, the Market Center Apartments.Below you will find details on upcoming events and state and local incentives. Our local highlight this month is from Sawyer which is a local commercial production company! If you filmed in California in the last two years, consider nominating your location team for a COLA award. Finally, for local filmmakers and businesses, there are a couple of upcoming production needs listed below.Whether you are near or far, we look forward to helping you from permit to premier in Shasta County!Have a lovely day!Sabrina JurisichShasta County Film CommissionerAFCI, Certified Film Commissioner; FLICS, Vice President
