How Can I Get My Business to be Used as a Filming Location?

The script drives the ‘look’ for the desired location and all properties have potential. To become a filming location, there are generally two ways. The first is if a Location Scout approaches you and the second is by registering your property on the Creative BC website. The City does not get involved in listing or promoting merchant properties.

If you are approached to use your business as a filming location, please ensure the owner and renter (as applicable) are involved in creating a written agreement with the production company that outlines privileges, expectations, compensation and responsibilities.

If you are uncertain if a Location Scout is bonafide you can check with the City Filming Coordinator, 604-527-4613, or confirm the production is real and active through the Create BC website, and in turn, call the production to validate the Location Scout and interest:
