The depiction of Calgary in films and the success of the Oscar-winning 'Brokeback Mountain', Oscar-nominated 'Inception' and the AMC series 'Hell on Wheels'. Filmmakers around the world are realizing the Calgary advantage and using the city as a backdrop for their productions. Many films are shot on location, using real scenery to tell their stories. Calgary has many desirable locations, from distinctive architecture to unique cityscapes that create just the right atmosphere for any scene.
