ASUCCESSFULYEAR
The film and television industryin British Columbia experienceda successful year in 2006/2007.Overall production activityremained stable at just over$1.2 billion while the domesticcomponent of the industrycontinued to show growth.
This level of production was generated despite an appreciatingCanadian dollar and significant competition from bothAmerican states and foreign countries who are increasinglyadopting the Canadian model of using the tax system toencourage production activity.The continued growth in the domestic sector reflects theincreasing ability of BC companies to develop and produce qualitycontent that is competitive in both Canadian and internationalmarkets. Growth in this sector is essential if BC is to continueits transformation from a film location to an internationallyrecognized production centre.British Columbia Film sees its role as a catalyst for industrygrowth and is committed to providing a stable, focused operatingenvironment in which the entrepreneurial skills of the industrycan flourish.In order to better define this role, British Columbia Film created,over the past year, a strategic service plan that addresses itscore responsibilities:· support the development and marketing of high quality,commercially viable British Columbia film, television anddigital media projects;· sustain and grow a competitive BC owned and controlled filmand television industry;· enable British Columbia production companies to fosterexisting, and establish new, relationships with national andinternational co-financing partners;· improve the ability of British Columbia production companiesto secure development and production financing and retainintellectual and financial control of content produced;· effectively administer provincial tax credit programs, ensuringthat BC remains competitive as a production centre andcontinues to attract private sector investment; and· assist in the development of the creative talent necessaryto sustain industry growth.The provincial tax credit programs, administered by BC Film,continue to be effective drivers of production activity and companygrowth. Again last year the impact of the Digital Animation orVisual Effects tax credit was particularly notable. This programhas made British Columbia internationally competitive inattracting visual effects production and has been instrumentalin repatriating digital animation work that was being producedoff-shore.During the past year, BC Film worked with Telefilm Canadaand other provincial agencies to insure a Canadian presenceat international film and television markets. Financial assistancewas provided to allow BC companies to attend these eventsin order to develop international co-productions and sellBC product in other markets.In keeping with our service plan commitment to identifyopportunities for the film and television sector to developmarkets and realize co-production agreements in Asia,BC Film attended the Hong Kong Film Market. Concurrent withthis initiative, BC Film continued to work with federal officials toimprove market intelligence about this region and to develop alonger term film and television strategy for Asia.Over the coming months BC Film will strengthen its commitmentto facilitating the development of business relationshipsbetween Asian producers and Canadian producers and serviceproviders by:· developing institutional links with Asian film and televisionagencies;· providing opportunities for Asian and Canadian producers toestablish meaningful business contacts; and· encouraging federal agencies to invest in a strategic approachto market development in Asia.The development of British Columbia’s film and television sectoris the result of effective public policy supporting the creativeand business skills of the industry. It is a powerful partnership.For the past twenty years the essential support provided by thegovernment of British Columbia has allowed BC Film to assistboth government and industry achieve their goals. We lookforward to continuing this role and contributing to a stronger,more sustainable industry.MICHAEL FRANCISChair, Board Of Directors, British Columbia Film
