for the stars.
The BC film industry has experienced tremendous growth in recent years and the Comox Valley has seen its share of productions. The Valley offers a wide variety of scenery packed into a relatively small geographic area – everything from mountains, snow and lush forest to seaside and beaches. Rolling agricultural lands and farms to urban scenes and quaint villages and quirky homes. The hospitality shown to the crews is also a positive selling feature.
There have been several feature films and commercial shot in the Valley, starting with parts of the feature film 24 Hours in 1999. In 2001 Subaru filmed several commercials at Mount Washington. Also in 2001, the feature film “Trapped” shot in various locations over a 3-week period which saw the local communities come together to supply meals, accommodation, transportation, equipment, props and picture vehicles. In 2004 Petro-Canada shot a commercial in Cumberland and Courtenay that ran during the 2004 Olympics. Since then there have been many other shoots.
The Comox Valley Film Commission is dedicated to assisting filmmakers in their quest for spectacular locations and experienced local crew and is committed to offer a film friendly environment.
