FILM in the Scenic City: Owen Sound & Area

Consider this your personal invitation to film in Owen Sound, Ontario, one of the most scenic cities on the Great Lakes, only two hours from Toronto.

Located on Georgian Bay, in a river valley surrounded by the limestone cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment, Owen Sound features waterfalls, parks, beaches and stunning landscapes, plus a revitalized downtown with heritage architecture.

Owen Sound is a film-friendly region that adapts to the needs of production. We are committed to fully supporting the commercial, television and film industries.

Come and you’ll find a variety of filming locations to choose from, along with accommodating municipal policies with regards to film permits. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered, from rehearsal space and technical support to catering, couriers and accommodation.

A dedicated film liaison officer at the city’s tourism office will walk you through every step on the way to producing your project.
