BC has every competitive advantage to ensure cost-effective production. As one of the largest centres for film and television production in North America, British Columbia is proud of its international reputation and proven track record for providing exceptional value for the producer’s dollar. With a full spectrum of services and facilities from pre-production to post-production, clients keep coming back because they know that in BC, there are no surprises - They can complete their project on time and on budget.
Although BC has a long history of servicing foreign production, local producers are increasing their expertise and developing partnerships across the globe. BC production companies have extensive production credits demonstrating high quality production work across a diverse range of projects. BC companies are nurturing diverse production relationships, encompassing everything from straightforward co-financing arrangements in which one partner provides partial investment while the other undertakes the actual production, to more complex arrangements that involve joint creative control over projects through co-production agreements.
Offering close proximity to and in the same time zone as Los Angeles, experienced creative and technical talent, partnerships with BC producers, world class infrastructure (studios, suppliers, data pipelines) and award winning expertise in digital animation, vfx and post-production, BC is truly a full service production centre. Add in the diversity of locations and highly competitive Provincial and Federal tax credits, and you can see why British Columbia is home to hundreds of film and television projects each year.
