Film crews in BC neighbourhoods and on city streets are now a common sight in British Columbia. As the third largest centre for film and television production in North America, BC is home to a busy and vibrant industry that has become an important part of the economic mix in our province.
Today, British Columbia’s film and television industry comprises state-of-the-art studios and infrastructure, a sophisticated visual effects and post production sector, and thousands of skilled, creative industry professionals who are internationally recognized for their talent.
Still, British Columbia’s diverse and spectacular locations – the original inspiration for production here – remain one of our most valuable industry resources. Film production in BC communities continues to play an important role in BC’s motion picture industry, creating opportunities throughout the province.
