WestJet now offers non-stop flights between Los Angeles (LAX) and Winnipeg (YWG), three times a week (Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays) on a year-round basis, providing productions with the ability to travel to and from our province quickly and easily.
Manitoba is the ideal location for filming, with various options for crew, performers and production facilities. The newest addition to our roster is Big Sky Studios offering 187,000 sq. ft. with four sound stages, production offices and support space. It enhances the world-class options for crew, performers and production facilities that already exist in Winnipeg.
Manitoba is ready for its closeup with a blockbuster tax credit! We offer one of the most competitive film tax credits in North America with up to 65% on Manitoba labor or up to 38% on eligible expenditures in Manitoba (including labor).
Manitoba has one of the largest collections of turn-of-the-last-century buildings in North America and has doubled for international locations such as New York, Chicago, London, San Francisco and France. At the same time, you can go from rolling prairies to a coastline and cottage country, a desert oasis to arctic terrain—the options are endless. Check out our guide to filming in Manitoba.
