Tulsa FMAC, Cherokee Film Receive Global Production Award Nominations

Screen International recently unveiled its shortlist for the 2024 Global Production Awards, which recognize outstanding and sustainable work in film and television production. Among this year’s nominees are two Oklahoma entities, including both the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture (Tulsa FMAC) and Cherokee Film.

“I am thrilled to see Tulsa FMAC and Cherokee Film receive well-deserved recognition for their achievements,” said Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell. “Film is one of the fastest growing industries in the state, and these offices have created exciting new job opportunities and economic growth in Northeast Oklahoma. Congratulations to Tulsa FMAC and Cherokee Film, and thank you for representing Oklahoma on the global stage.”

Tulsa FMAC was nominated for the City of Film Award for their excellence in demonstrating a record of creative and commercial success in effectively and efficiently delivering great productions within their city, which benefit the local economy through skills development and investment. Among the five nominees in this category, Tulsa is the only city in the U.S. to be featured among its international competitors.

“Our office is truly honored to be considered for such global recognition. Making the shortlist alone is an extreme honor and signaler to the rest of the industry,” said Meg Gould, Executive Director of Tulsa FMAC. “This type of international attention is indicative of Tulsa’s visionary creatives, capable and eager workforce, collaborative partners and our irreplaceable locations and topography.”

Additionally, Cherokee Film, whose four branches include Cherokee Film Productions, Cherokee Film Studios, Cherokee Film Commission and the Cherokee Film Institute, was honored with not one, but three shortlist nominations, including the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Award (Cherokee Film); the Film Commission Award (Cherokee Film Commission); and the Community Impact Award for their original programming, “Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People.”

“It is such a great honor to receive multiple inclusions within such globally competitive shortlists, but seeing our friends in Tulsa earn a well-deserved inclusion just makes it even more enjoyable,” said Jennifer Loren, senior director of Cherokee Film. “Our continued collaboration with Tulsa FMAC only enhances both organizations’ abilities to overdeliver on productions, cultivate workforce talent and make lasting impacts on our communities.”

Winners will be announced at the 2024 Global Production Awards ceremony, which will be held on May 20, 2024, at Mademoiselle Gray Plage Barrière amid the internationally acclaimed Cannes Film Festival.
