About

The Southern California Motion Picture Council is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1936 to promote the best in motion pictures. One of the oldest Hollywood organizations, this prestigious group has been encouraging the production of diverse and international family oriented films and television programs for almost 80 years. We promote civic-minded, educational and cultural programs of exceptional merit and present Golden Halo awards for the best in movies, television, stage plays, and the performing arts.

 

Our first honoree was Jean Harlow and our events are attended by Hollywood's greatest living legends including Academy Award winning actress Margaret O'Brien, Rose-Marie, Tippi Hedren, Carol Channing and many others. Held at the historic Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City CA, the walls speak of a star-studded past including Lauren Bacall, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Robert F. Kennedy, Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney and John Wayne.
