In 2009, the Calgary Film Centre Ltd., a non-profit subsidiary of Calgary Economic Development, was tasked with developing a purpose-built film studio to act as an incubator for the industry by promoting Alberta and foreign film productions.
The aim is for the Calgary Film Centre to become a centre of innovation and excellence in the creative and digital media industries, consolidating leading-edge activity, while driving project and process development as well as economic diversification in Alberta.
Having officially opened its doors in May, 2016, The Calgary Film Centre sits on an 8.35-acre site at 5750 76th Avenue SE in an emerging creative centre in the Great Plains Industrial area of Calgary, providing easy access to downtown and the airport. Three sound stages have a combined 50,000 square feet with parking, circulation space, site security and landscaping. The site also provides 35,000 square feet of multipurpose workshop warehouse space in three separate bays and our anchor tenant, William F. White International, Inc. is on site.
