Canadian film production company Martini Film Studios is planning to build the country’s largest studio complex in Vancouver. When complete, it will provide 600,000 sq ft of soundstages, offices and storage.
The company, which helped to make movies such as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Another Life and the television spin-off of Snowpiercer, is planning to build the facility on a 25-acre site in Langley, 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
The development is currently undergoing design and planning. When complete it will triple Martini’s production capacity in the town.
Gemma Martini, the company’s chief executive, said: "Space is in huge demand, and with the industry thriving and the growth potential for the film and television business across all of British Columbia, we’re proud to expand our services for the sector."
Vancouver is a global centre for film making. According to the Vancouver Economic Commission, the film industry has contributed US$14.2bn to the local economy since 2012.
