As the first jurisdiction in Canada to establish a provincial film commission office and offer a film and television incentive program, Alberta continues to lead the way in providing support for film production.
The Government of Alberta, through Alberta Film, supports the ongoing growth, sustainability, competitiveness and business attraction of Alberta's screen-based production industry. Support is provided through three key areas:
- Marketing, advertising and event management including the marketing of Alberta's screen-based production incentive program, the Alberta Media Fund (AMF). The AMF provides a unique production incentive as a grant against all eligible production expenses incurred in Alberta.
- Locations and logistics services including funding and facilitating scouting within the province and supporting film-friendly initiatives.
- Industry development and alignment with government.
Visit the Alberta Film website for more information about filmmaking in Alberta including production incentives.
