Toronto sees another strong year for film, television and digital productions in 2017

In 2017, domestic and foreign film, television, digital and commercials production investments in Toronto achieved their second highest level ever at $1.8 billion, the third consecutive year that this important sector has contributed more than $1.5 billion to Toronto’s economy. These numbers and others were part of an annual report of this sector presented today to the Economic Development Committee.

“We’re proud of Toronto’s film and television industry and we want it to continue to grow,” said Mayor John Tory. “We will keep working with our industry partners so they have what they need to create jobs, attract talent and contribute to the economy. Whether the final product will be on the big screen, the small screen or streamed online, we want that production to be a made-in-Toronto production.”

Last year was outstanding for Toronto-based productions. The film The Shape of Water, shot in and around Toronto, received the most nominations for the Oscars and Golden Globes while The Handmaid’s Tale series was prominently acknowledged at the Primetime Emmy’s. The Toronto screen-based industry was also involved in the film productions of Molly’s Game, Downsizing and The Breadwinner, which also received international award nominations and acclaim. This year, anticipated productions such as the eighth season of Suits, Umbrella Academy and It: Chapter 2 will shoot across the city.

Some of the major highlights for 2017:

  • Domestic and international screen-based production investments exceeded the $1-billion mark for a seventh consecutive year.
  • The number of projects shooting in Toronto achieved the highest ever level, with 1,432 projects shooting in the city over 6,804 days of production.
  • Investment in commercials production continued to rise to record levels, growing to $392 million in 2017. Investment in this area has nearly doubled in the last four years from the $197 million recorded in 2014.
  • Domestic productions showed solid growth in 2017 after decreasing in 2016, moving from $429 million in 2016 to $477 million in 2017.
  • Television series, both foreign and domestic, continue to be the dominant type of production occurring in the city, accounting for 73 per cent of all major production investments.
  • Investment in animation and visual effects remains strong at $381 million in 2017. Since 2014, investment in this area has increased by 338 per cent (from $87.1 million).

Toronto’s On-Screen Industry: 2017 – The Year In Review


Los Angeles Business Mission 2018

Mayor John Tory and Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the City’s Economic Development Committee joined a delegation of 23 Toronto companies and organizations in Los Angeles on April 19, 2018 to pitch industry leaders in streaming, television and film on the benefits of bringing productions to Toronto.

During the mission, Mayor Tory and the delegation met with established studios such as Warner, HBO, NBC Universal, Disney and Fox, as well as streaming services and original content producers such as Amazon Studios and Netflix.

Since the last mission to Los Angeles in January 2017, Toronto City Council unanimously adopted Spotlight on Toronto: A Strategic Action Plan for the Film, Television and Digital Media Industry. Updates on this strategic action plan will provide Los Angeles-based industry representatives a clear understanding of the City’s priorities in the sector including infrastructure capacity and opportunities, improvements to customer service and advocating with other levels of government.

The City is addressing infrastructure issues that will unlock growth potential for Toronto’s film industry. Existing studios such as Cinespace Film Studios and Pinewood Toronto Studios have announced plans for significant expansions. In late 2017, the City intervened to purchase the Showline Studios space to preserve it for film use and the City expects to identify an operator for that studio space very shortly. Additionally, the City has identified two sites – Basin Street and McCleary District – that it will tender with the specific intent of building more studio space and further anchoring the film and television industry in the Port Lands.

The Los Angeles business mission is a collaborative public and private sector initiative supported by Toronto’s community of screen-based service providers.
