Welcome to the Northwest Territories Film Commission

"Although any location above the 60th parallel is not conventionally thought of as production-friendly, the Northwest Territories is the exception. With the well-connected and well-supplied hub of Yellowknife, it's possible to produce almost anything here."  – Ian Hay, Omni Productions (Producer, Arctic Air)


“The NWT proved to be a place of authentic characters and spectacular landscapes.  Our DP’s loved the light that made the landscapes glow.  Our directors loved the people who were unpretentious and real.  And the stories we found were often surprising, outlandish and totally original.” - David Gullason, Omnifilm Entertainment (Series Producer for Ice Pilots NWT)


On location with the NWT Film Commission, your portal to a place of endless opportunities for your next film production.  We are a new, fresh commission of experienced and established northern professionals with a “go to the wall’ attitude. Your needs are our needs.



The Northwest Territories Film Commission is a branch of the territorial government and was established in 1999. The primary role of the Commission is to promote the NWT as an ultimate production location for feature films, commercials, documentaries, television programs, and still shoots. Our staff will be happy to act as your liaison through every phase of your production.
