Film Friendly Calgary

The City of Calgary is making great strides to support our growing creative economy by becoming more film friendly. Our policies and programs are evolving to further position Calgary as a no surprise jurisdiction that offers simplified service and support for productions filming in our city.

Being a film friendly city strengthens our local economy, stimulates employment for our award-winning talent and crews, and attracts more local, national and international film and television production to Calgary.  

Information about filming in Calgary

Our Film Friendly team works in partnership with the Calgary Film Commission to simplify and expedite the success of your production in Calgary. Intake and application forms for productions using City of Calgary services are found on this website. 

If you do not require municipal permits and need information about filming in Calgary, scouting needs, and permits on private properties, please visit Calgary Economic Development.
