Who Is the Chilliwack Film Commission? 

The Chilliwack Film Commission, a division of Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (the economic development organization of the City of Chilliwack), was formed in 1999 in response to a growing interest from producers to film in Chilliwack's diverse landscapes. The Commission's mandate is to attract film professionals from all over the world, to facilitate their needs and to provide top rate locations. The Commission has set in motion a number of initiatives (including this Web site) to make it easy for producers and site locators to select Chilliwack.

A Supporting Role    

The Commission's efforts will help provide jobs for the community and build BC's billion-dollar film industry, which is the third largest in North America behind Los Angeles and New York. 

Chilliwack has already proven to be an attractive filming location. To date, a number of major productions have been filmed in Chilliwack, including The Pledge (starring Jack Nicholson), The Stick Up (starring James Spader), The Mangler 2 (starring Malcolm McDowell), as well as some commercials (eg: A & W Restaurants, Smucker's and Canadian Savings Bonds).

If you do not see the service or resource you need in this Web site, please contact us directly at info@chilliwackfilmcommission.com. Our goal is to provide all the locations needed to film your entire project in Chilliwack's unique, rural and small-town settings. Check out our locations database, which is filled with a variety of locations, and let us be your one-stop shopping source for filming in Chilliwack.
