Mathew Parry

Interim Manager, Creative Industry Programs

Mathew began his career in film locations in his native Wales, spending a decade working for the Wales Screen Commission, attracting and providing support to productions of all shapes and sizes. His locations talents eventually led him to Vancouver by way of Los Angeles where for a number of years he helped facilitate international productions on behalf of the UK Film Council from their Hollywood office.

Now at Creative BC, Mathew’s primary responsibilities lie within the Funding Programs team, where he oversees a number of programs including the Project Development Fund, and other partnership programs with external organizations supporting film and TV development.

Mathew has a Master’s degree in history, and is also a graduate of the Documentary Film Production program at Langara College. A short film he produced and shot as part of the program was selected for screening at DOXA (Vancouver Documentary Film Festival) and at other festivals in Canada and the UK.
