Hollywood North, and the low Canadian dollar

Hollywood North is a Film Industry nicknameĀ  given to Canada because of the great number of American producers come to Canada to film movies.

Romy Goulem, Advanced Filmmaking Professor at Fanshawe College says that the prospect to make films in Canada is even more attractive now, because of our low Canadian dollar. These American made films are called service films.

According to the Canadian Media Production Association, 84 domestic films were produced in 2014, as compared to 91 service films.

The upcoming Horror film, “The Witch” shot scenes in Algonquin Park because the directors felt that it matched the New England setting of the film.
