f Filming Vancouver: A Vancouver Film Industry Must Have

A Vancouver Film Industry Must Have

 Dreaming in the Rain: How Vancouver Became Hollywood North by Northwest
-By David Spaner
Twenty years ago, Vancouver didn't exist on any map of the film world. Today, Vancouver is at the heart of two film worlds. The city's American-based film industry is powerful enough to inspire loathing and threats from Hollywood, and its Canadian-based film scene is among the most acclaimed, provocative independent filmmaking communities anywhere.

Vancouver Province movie critic David Spaner's Dreaming in the Rain is the story of West Coast Canada's emergence as a movie capital, from its early days as a Hollywood studio backlotShum, Lynne Stopkewich, Bruce Sweeney, and countless others, who remain resolutely independent.

Spaner writes about the rise of the city as one of the major centers of film production not only in North America but in the world.
