City of North Vancouver Filming Locations

With spectacular water and mountain views, city skylines and industrial landscapes, the City of North Vancouver offers an unparalleled beauty and diversity of filming locations. The combination of new urban buildings, heritage homes, and turn-of-the-century commercial spaces bring together the past, present and future in a single landscape. Many well-kept residential areas, parks and greenways create additional possibilities. Located a short 20-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, the City offers state-of-the-art filming studios and facilities for your production.

The Shipyards is a popular commercial and community space (with film-friendly cafes, shops and restaurants) has welcomed everything from large feature films to small photo shoots.

North Vancouver City Hall features innovative architectural design with a naturally illuminated hallway running the length of the building. Sharp angles, beautiful art and an open concept create opportunities to film in many genres.
City Library
The North Vancouver City Library encompasses 36,000 square feet of public space on three levels. The Library, with its many open spaces inside and access to the Civic Plaza outside, offers a very versatile filming location (after hours or holiday filming is preferred).
The North Vancouver Cemetery is a park-like space containing many trees on well-maintained grounds. The old section of the cemetery is available for filming and features erect, stone tombstones dating back to the early 1900.

The City boasts a range of residential styles to suit a number of film production needs, from heritage-style brick work and turn of the century wooden homes to classic wartime housing to modern condos. Contact Creative BC for details.

Grand Boulevard stretches for 12 blocks from East 19th Street south to East Keith Road. A multi-purpose trail weaves through the open space and beautiful heritage-style homes and residences line both sides of the street. The City's many parks and trails that offer baseball diamonds, all weather fields, children's play areas just to name a few.
