In Alberta we don't wait for economic solutions - we create them.

 

Streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have experienced tremendous growth, causing companies like Apple and Disney to produce their own library of original streaming content to compete. This arms race to produce content is a unique opportunity for the Alberta screen industry. 

Alberta already utilizes a relationship with major studios and networks to help produce high quality television and blockbuster films. Many Albertans can proudly say they've personally contributed to Emmy and Oscar-winning projects. 

With our talented crews, our breathtaking locations, and our rich-production history Alberta is perfectly poised to become the next great screen industry 'hub'.  

 

Millions of foreign investment dollars are there for the taking.

Thousands of jobs are being created in other jurisdictions like British Columbia, Ontario and Manitoba - virtually overnight. 

Let's seize this opportunity. Let's create jobs. Let's diversify our economy. Let's create content.

Add your voice in support of bringing more film and television projects to Alberta!
