Mathew Parry

Program Analyst, Development

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 responsibility is to connect incoming production companies with British Columbia’s many and varied filming locations. He reviews scripts in order to prepare customized location packages, and organizes location surveys for creative teams.

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.
