From the majestic Rocky Mountains to the sprawling prairies and Badlands, along with the vibrant urban settings of Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta’s remarkably diverse geography inspires creativity in screen productions. Our locations, combined with the Calgary Film Centre’s 50,000 square feet of purpose-built sound stages, have been bringing stories to the world - and the podium. With award-winning productions like the Revenant, Brokeback Mountain and Fargo, it’s no wonder Alberta has more Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy wins in the last decade of any province in Canada.
Strong community relationships are critical to a successful film and television production. Behind the Scenes seeks to connect the film and television industry with our communities through education, collaboration and engagement.
Behind the Scenes is a Calgary Economic Development initiative in partnership with Alberta Film, William F. White International Inc, ACTRA Alberta, AMPIA, Directors Guild of Canada, IATSE Local 212, Teamsters Local 362, The City of Calgary and Shaw TV Calgary,
