At a time when the provincial government is reviewing its arts and culture policy, Manitoba's film industry can puff its chest out a bit.

Manitoba Film and Music has pegged production volumes at about 127 million dollars for last year -- a 27 per cent increase on the year prior.

Executive director of On Screen Manitoba Nicole Matiation says Manitoba's film and television industry has flourished through strategic, long-term investment.

 

 

Matiation says those strategic investments are what has allowed Manitoba's industry to compete internationally as a filming centre.

CEO and Film Commissioner at Manitoba Film and Music Carole Vivier says Manitoba has developed a fantastic reputation as a great place to make films.

 

 

Vivier expects the industry to continue to grow here in Manitoba, and she says the tax credit we offer here is our most important tool.

One notable production last year was the Universal Cable Productions series Channel Zero, which filmed seasons one and two in Manitoba; Vivier says they're coming back for seasons three and four, and another series to be shot here will soon be announced as well.
