    TO LIST YOUR LOCATION

    If you are a residential or business property owner in British Columbia, you may directly register your property for inclusion in the library and should it be of interest, you will be contacted directly by the production company. There is no cost to list your property with Creative BC.

    For further information about motion picture production, what to expect and best practices, see our Filming in Your Community section of our web site.
