Alberta Film, a part of the Government of Alberta, supports the growth, sustainability, competitiveness and business attraction of Alberta's screen-based production industry. The Government of Alberta continues to lead the way in providing support for production having been the first jurisdiction in Canada to both establish a provincial film commission office and offer a film and television incentive program. Today, Alberta Film continues to carry out government's mandate through three key areas:

  1. Marketing, advertising and event management;
  2. Locations and logistics services including funding and facilitating scouting within the province and supporting film-friendly initiatives; and
  3. Industry development and alignment with government.

Funding for screen-based production in Alberta is provided through the Alberta Production Grant, a unique incentive based on all eligible production expenses incurred in Alberta.
