Why Big Sky Studios?
Robust Tax Incentives
The “Film and Video Production Tax Credit” is the most competitive in North America with up to 65% on Manitoba labour, or up to 38% on eligible all spend expenditures.
Wide variety of natural spaces and authentic locations, from turn-of-the-century architecture, to charming country villages, sprawling prairies, rolling hills, sandy beaches, thick forests,
rugged wilderness, and one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world that easily ‘doubles’ as the ocean.
Manitoba is a welcoming film-friendly community with well-developed infrastructure and easy-to-obtain filming permits, world-class production labor, and highly-skilled professionals who love what they do.
