LOS ANGELES (AP) - Film and television production is on the rise across Southern California.

The Daily News (https://bit.ly/1iVX0NI) cites a FilmLA report this week that finds that shoots of feature films jumped 9.7 percent in the second quarter of 2016, compared to the same period a year ago.

FilmLA is a nonprofit group that handles permits for the city and county. President Paul Audley credits a California tax credit program launched last year designed to keep productions in-state.

The report says overall production, including for television and other media, was up 5.8 percent from April through June.
