THE CUT TING ROOM FLOOR
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 budget television and blockbuster films. Many Albertans can proudly say they've personally contributed to Emmy and Oscar-winning projects. However, this relationship is being strained by changes to our provincial film incentive policy.
We are missing out on production opportunities and millions of foreign investment dollars. While thousands of jobs are being created in other jurisdictions, Alberta is left on the cutting room floor.
