ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque Film Office has won top honors from the Location Managers Guild of America.

The office was named “Outstanding Film Commission” of 2013 at the group’s inaugural awards show Saturday, beating out three Southern California film commissions and Iceland.

Organizers say the award is given to the film commission “that rises above and beyond the call of duty.” The Albuquerque Film Office was nominated for its contribution to the TV production “Breaking Bad” and the feature film “Lone Survivor.”

Mayor Richard Berry credits city film liaison Ann Lerner and her team for the honor. He says the “the critical assistance they provide to the industry is a key reason Albuquerque is considered a great place for filmmaking.”
