  • Government budgets – and Canadian economy – hurt by film tax breaks
    Monday February 25th 2013

    It’s government budgets season once again and the governments wanting to narrow deficits should not forget about the billions of dollars in tax-based expenditure programs that are delivered through the tax system. For example, the federal and almost all provincial governments provide inducements to Hollywood film producers to shoot films in Canada, at a cost of about $475 million each year, but research shows that Canadians are poorer, not richer, as a result of this spending.

  • Banff Mountain Film Fest features astounding adventuring films over three nights at the Rio

  • Paul W.S. Anderson to shoot Pompeii in Toronto
    Thursday February 21st 2013

    Pompeii, a 3D action film set in ancient times and sure to have an explosive ending, is coming to Toronto’s Cinespace Film Studios. The film, a co-production of Don Carmody Productions and Germany’s Constantin Film, is set to begin shooting in April at Cinespace’s 30-acre Kipling Ave. studio site. “It’s very exciting. It’s a huge visual effects project. It’s going to be a big action adventure with very cool visuals and a lot of suspense,” said veteran producer Don Carmody (Chicago, Good Will Hunting). The film will be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who has previously laid waste to Toronto locales with the gory and highly profitable Resident Evil franchise.

  • Fairmont Royal York Hotel still in demand for movie roles
    Wednesday February 20th 2013

    There’s no Academy Award for stand-ins, but if there was Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel would have a credible claim on a nomination. The Front St. institution, opened in 1929, has doubled for American hotels whenever an opulent ballroom, magnificent lobby or luxurious suite was needed for a film shoot. The Royal York, almost always disguised, has appeared in about 20 features – including the Oscar-nominated Cinderella Man (2005) and Oscar-winning The Killing Fields (1984) – and her casting calls keep coming.
