On January 26 this year, Movie Maker Magazine released its list of top places in North America for filmmakers to live and work.

Metro Vancouver ranked number five.

It came behind Chicago, Austin, Atlanta, and leading city, Albuquerque.

In its report, the magazine mentioned  that Sandra Bullock shot an untitled Netflix film in the Chinatown district of Vancouver in 2020.

Movie Maker Magazine also noted that Vancouverites are “accustomed to seeing famous faces around town”.

It stated that “generous, sustainable tax incentives, and temperate Canadian weather have lured many an A-lister up the Pacific Coast”.

There’s also a mention about Vancouver’s natural wonders.

The publication stated that “you can ponder what it might be about as you walk along nine beaches stretching out over 18 kilometers — that’s about 11 miles in American”.

Now if we can just make filming here in these parts more green, that would be great for the environment.

That is exactly being planned by the Metro Vancouver regional government.
