Who we are

Alberta is a special place with an independent spirit and a long history of turning something that appears average into something amazing. We understand the power of dreams and cultivate what creative dreamers need to touch hearts and expand minds.

The commission operates under Alberta’s Ministry of Arts, Culture and Status of Women and supports the Ministry of Jobs, Economy and Trade.

What we do

From big-budget, award-winning feature films, broadcast TV, streaming series, documentaries and everything in between – name it and we have helped get it done.

Support for your shoot

Once you have boots on the ground, we are here to help you find everything you need to make sure you get the most out of every production day and every production dollar – from equipment and studio rentals, to crew and catering. We’ll even recommend things you can do on your day off, from great restaurants and nightlife, to unparalleled natural adventures.
