Production History

Alberta’s film and television production history dates back to the 1940s with films like Springtime in the Rockies starring Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda and Cesar Romero, and River of No Return starring Marilyn Monroe. Alberta is also the proud home of Canada's first film commission office and launched Canada's first film and television incentive program – The Alberta Motion Picture Development Corporation. Today, Alberta continues to lead the way in providing support to this vital industry.
