Filming in Canada
Canada remains a top international filming location, with Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal as the main production hubs rivalling the likes of New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Generous provincial filming incentives are a key element of Canada’s overall success, as are the country’s studio facilities and ability to double for US locations.
Vancouver offers easy access to California and has recently hosted high-profile movies like Deadpool, the hugely successful Fifty Shades of Grey and the much- anticipated zombie spinoff Fear the Walking Dead. British Columbia is also becoming a visual effects hub. Sony Pictures Imageworks now has its HQ in Vancouver and Animal Logic will be opening a local office to make The Lego Movie Sequel.
Toronto has world-class facilities including a branch of Pinewood Studios. The eastern province got a boost with Adam Sandler’s big-budget adventure Pixels and Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
Montreal has hosted two X-Men sequels and could also benefit from the falling value of the Canadian dollar, which will only increase Canada’s appeal for the US.
Alberta is also building its first studio – the Calgary Film Centre – which should be opening for business in 2016.
