With spectacular water and mountain views, city skylines and industrial landscapes, the City of North Vancouver offers an unparalleled beauty and diversity of filming locations.
The last five years have seen record high number of film permits in CNV. There is a reason why everyone seems to know someone in the film biz – CNV has one of the highest percentage of film workers, per capita, in BC.
The combination of new urban buildings, heritage homes, and turn-of-the-century commercial spaces bring together the past, present and future in a single landscape. Many well-kept residential areas, parks and greenways create additional possibilities.
CNV says your property could also have a starring role as a film location in a movie or TV series.
In recent years over 30% of filming in CNV took place in private homes and businesses.
The financial rewards can be considerable, ranging from $500 to $3,500+ each day, depending on the type of project, its budget, your property and the amount of space that will be used.
The ideal property typically has large rooms with plenty of natural light, as well as access to on-street parking.
Locations do not need to be glamorous or in an immaculate condition. Single family homes, shops, office, townhouses and condos are all desirable property types.
The City film office is not involved in negotiations between the Film Production and residents/businesses.
