Motion Picture Industry Statistics

Creative BC provides statistics on film and television production in BC based on information that the agency collects as part of its administration of the Government of British Columbia‘s film and television tax credit programs.

Tax credit certifications are a good overall indicator of film and television production activity but there are limitations to the data. Due to the timing of the receipt of an application, a tax credit certification may be issued in a fiscal year different from when the production took place. Additionally, BC production and labour expenditures are based on budgets that Creative BC receives at the time of application and may differ from the final production and labour costs.
