Outstanding Achievement Award – 2012

IATSE 891 50 year anniversary

Fifty years ago 18 BC theatre and freelance film technicians formed IATSE Local 891. It’s unlikely that those pioneering individuals had any idea how large and successful their infant Local would eventually become.

Five decades later, that group has expanded to over 5,000 members in 23 departments, each representing different pre and post-production crafts. From just one show filmed in 1962, the Union now averages 50 productions each year and since 1962 has helped create over 1300 movies and television productions.

Local 891 believes that professional crews equal professional results and for this reason invests in its members and in the industry in several ways. The Union supports a wide range of training for members to upgrade the skills that they offer productions as well as maintaining a strong commitment to safety in the workplace through safety-focused training.

Every year, Local 891 members are involved in various awards programs. At this year’s Leo Awards, 36 members have been nominated in 24 categories.

IATSE Local 891 is proud to have contributed to the building of British Columbia’s reputation as being one of the best places in the world to make quality film and television and looks forward to crewing many more productions in the decades to come.

We are proud to celebrate IATSE Local 891 with a 2012 LEO AWARD for Outstanding Achievement.
