Where Else But In Vancouver, Canada?

'Vancouver never plays itself' montage showcases perennial problem


In defence of Vancouver, Canada from a Canadian expat former Vancouverite filmmaker Tony Zhou's video. Vancouver, Canada doesn't need to play itself. It should not stay anonymous either but be made aware of its contributions and stay low profile.

Where else can we play golf and ski on the same day?

Where else can we travel the world without leaving the city?

Where else can we have authentic foods from around the world in one city?


Vancouver Never Plays Itself


Every Frame a Painting Published on Sep 13, 2015

Perhaps no other city has been as thoroughly hidden from modern filmmaking as Vancouver, my hometown. Today, it’s the third biggest film production city in North America, behind Los Angeles and New York. And yet for all the movies and TV shows that are shot there, we hardly ever see the city itself. So today, let’s focus less on the movies and more on the city in the background. Press the CC button to see movie names and locations.


All in all, if the American dollar is stronger than the Canadain dollar and the tax enviroment is favorable to film in Vancouver, Canada the filming industry listed below will be there to take as much advantage as possible. Vancouverites should not be annoyed about their city not getting the credits but appreciate that their city is archived!
