City of Edmonton Screen Industries Consultation Sessions

For the past year, the Office of the Edmonton Film Commissioner has been vacant. Understanding the importance of a strong film, television and digital screen industry, the Edmonton City Council Executive Council directed the City Administration to do the following:

Work with the Edmonton Arts Council, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation and Industry Stakeholders and return to Executive Committee with a recommended Terms of Reference, scope and clearly defined partners, membership and funding strategy for a preferred model to replace the film commission.

Input from industry stakeholders is the critical part of this process. Four (4) consultation sessions have been set up to:

  • Inform stakeholders of the process to date
  • Discuss significant changes in the industry
  • Seek input on how to best increase screen production in the Edmonton area
  • Determine what new role the Film Commission should have
  • Provide additional feedback

All the sessions listed below will follow the same format and subjects, so individuals need only sign up for one session.
