Our community continues to grow in the film industry. The Okanagan has been on everyone’s radar and the government is supportive with tax credits for productions that shoot outside the Lower Mainland. Three years ago, the Okanagan was the location for big-budget movies Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, and Go With Me, featuring Anthony Hopkins.There has also been the steady stream of lower-budget movies, made-for-TV films, commercials and corporate videos that are made in the Okanagan. B.C.’s film industry is the third largest in North America and provides hundreds of jobs in the region. It’s a vital part of our economy, so with more movies being filmed here, we need casting for more Background work, crew, make-up artists, set designers etc. creating more jobs in the Okanagan.
