The world’s most dynamic digital entertainment & interactive cluster


The Film & Media Centre (FMC) and the Vancouver Film Commission (VFC) are operational departments of the Vancouver Economic Commission.

They work together to deliver on three core mandates: to strengthen Vancouver’s position as a global leader in the media entertainment industry by marketing the city and its attributes; to advocate to all levels of government on key issues related to growing the industry; and to attract future investment to the entire spectrum of companies that constitute this industry. They do this by building upon the necessary four pillars of investment, promotion, advocacy and talent.


About the Film & Media Centre

Leveraging the ongoing convergence of film, visual effects, animation, games and technology requires new monetization models. FMC therefore facilitates a collegial exploration of a new business playbook by convening Vancouver’s content creators and platform developers in these pioneering industries. The famously collaborative nature of Vancouver’s film & media industries has earned it a growing reputation as the city-wide studio.

Other key objectives are to develop and implement a strategy to strengthen the Digital Entertainment & Interactive (DE&I) industries to drive digital entertainment finance, cultivate locally-owned intellectual property and accrue local economic benefits including local employment, investment, innovation and raising the profile of Vancouver. This encompasses the industry’s entire supply chain and ecosystem, including education, small-business and professional services, VFX, animation, augmented reality, virtual reality and video games.
