British Columbia is home to some of the world’s most distinctive, diverse and spectacular scenery. Known the world over to serve every creative demand—from soaring connifers, vast tundra, majestic mountains, and lush rainforests to sparkling cityscapes on the ocean, B.C. is an exceptionally breathtaking backdrop for any story.

Almost entirely rural, the area is also rich in historical sights, Indigenous communities, and frontier heritage locations.

The Kootenays have a world of looks for filmmakers – from charming turn of-the-century heritage towns to mansions, mountain lodges and rustic cabins; the vibrant and offbeat creative communities are filled with creators and makers and surrounded by breathtaking, world-renowned vistas.
The unparalleled scenery includes rugged mountain glaciers, snowy peaks, and alpine meadows, with deep valleys bottoming into sparkling lakes connected by pristine rivers and tumbling waterfalls; the deep forests and natural hot springs co-exist with farm and ranch lands, wetlands, and orchards.
