British Columbians take a collaborative approach and bring heart to every production. Together, the provincial ecosystem of film and television resources, B.C.’s motion picture industry represents a mature, full-service global motion picture hub. The industry is the largest in Canada and third-largest in North America— with world-leading expertise, supports and services from script to screen.

Established in 2002, the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia (MPPIA) is a member-based non-profit organization dedicated to a strong future for BC’s motion picture production sector. Together, MPPIA’s diverse membership represents the ‘voice and vision’ of the motion picture production industry in British Columbia. MPPIA’s vision is to grow, diversify and promote a competitive and sustainable motion picture industry in B.C.

MPPIA members work together to inform, educate, develop and market new initiatives that ensure B.C.’s motion picture industry flourishes as part of British Columbia’s vibrant, environmentally conscious, knowledge-based economy.

The Canadian Media Producers Association – BC Producer’s Branch (CMPA) is a provincial chapter of the CMPA, working on behalf of British Columbia production companies. Starting in 1948 as the Association of Motion Picture Producers and Laboratories of Canada (AMPPLC), CMPA acts as Canada’s trade association for independent producers, CMPA represents hundreds of companies engaged in the development, production and distribution of English-language content for TV, feature film and digital media channels. From indie films to children’s television shows, the association continues to produce an incredible array of projects — there is no doubt that one of your favourite Canadian TV shows was produced by a member of the CMPA.
