Pressing Play in Canada: From Nunavut to Nova Scotia, Production Returns to the Eastern Provinces!
What do handmaids, ancient warriors, art experts, and the Starfleet have in common? They’re all filming in Canada! Whether for a period film, an action-adventure set in exciting locations around the world, or a superhero epic, eastern Canada checks all the boxes.
