As Canada’s fourth-largest filming jurisdiction, Calgary is home to award-winning talent and crews, world-renowned locations and a purpose-built film studio. It’s no wonder Calgary is a location of choice for local, national and international filmmakers who are inspired to bring their stories to the world – and the podium.

A Location That Inspires Creativity

“Alberta, simply put, is a film and television maker’s dream”
-Anson Mount, Hell on Wheels, Thank-You Letter to Calgary, July 2016

From the deserts of Afghanistan to the battlefields of feudal Japan to a trendy restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calgary is a chameleon able to play a wide spectrum of roles.

While best known for our majestic, awe-inspiring scenery central to the imagery and imagination evoked by the frontier of the untamed West, Calgary's remarkably diverse geography and vibrant urban settings make it a very popular setting for a vast range of productions. Within a three-hour radius of Calgary, a filmmaker can experience the prairies, the Badlands, the Rocky Mountains and two large municipalities.
