The state of the film industry in Squamish

  • January 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • West Coast Railway Heritage Park

We will have a panel of experts and a round table discussion on the film industry in Squamish. We'd like to make some recommendations to the District of Squamish on what they are doing right and how they could change things to do it better. Some possible questions would be:

  • What is working well now?
  • What doesn't work for the film industry?
  • What doesn't work for residents and businesses affected by filming?
  • How could we make it better for both groups?
  • Would a film commission help?
  • If it would who would run it and fund it?
  • What is the current economic impact of filming in Squamish?
  • ????????

Bring your questions and suggestions. If you know people in the industry get them out to the meetup.

    That was a good start to our year, was awesome to see such a variety in interests and backgrounds. It was a great start to the conversation and assessment about the role of the film industry in Squamish and how to make it work for our community.
