  • Film Commission’s “Hollywood in Your Backyard” Film Industry Mixer Set for January 28 at Carmel Mission Inn
    The Monterey County Film Commission’s next “Hollywood in Your Backyard” film industry networking mixer—designed to gather local crew and service providers wanting to be a part of film production--takes place Wednesday, Jan. 28. It will be held at the Carmel Mission Inn’s Fuse Lounge Cafe at 3665 Rio Road, Carmel, from 5 to 8 p.m.
    The no-host mixer includes free appetizers with the purchase of a beverage, and guests will enjoy happy hour prices until 7 p.m. Reservations are requested at or by calling the film commission at 831-646-0910.
  • A newly-updated Monterey County Movie Map highlights some of the more than 200 films that have shot scenes in this area. Moviemakers have captured local scenery as far back as 1897 in a couple of Thomas Edison’s first “moving pictures”—“Surf at Monterey” and “Hotel Del Monte.” From “Play Misty for Me” to “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” to “Turner & Hooch,” locations here have played a starring role. Recent productions include “The Forger” with Carmel scenes, and the film “Big Sur,” (based on the book by Jack Kerouac) with locations at Bixby Canyon, Rocky Creek Bridge and Hwy. 1.
    The movie map is a collaboration between the Monterey County Film Commission and the Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau, which gives out the maps at its Monterey Visitors Center.
