Is Regina The New Tinseltown?

Film production is dying in Ontario. So where is the new Hollywood North? Saskatchewan. The province offers generous tax credits and has seen production soar 2,400 percent in the past few years. “The co-operative movement is rooted here, so people know if you don’t work together you ain’t getting nowhere. If we don’t have experience in the province we can deem someone from another province or country a Saskatchewan resident. And unlike other tax programs, we can pay it out above the line, that is, on producers, key cast and directors.”
