Cre­ative Coun­sel Fis­cal 2016–2017 rep­re­sented a high-wa­ter mark for B.C.’s lm and TV in­dus­try, with an es­ti­mated $2.6 bil­lion spent on pro­duc­tions last year—up more than 35 per­cent over 2015–2016. Thank the Cana­dian dol­lar, yes, but also the rise of stream­ing ser­vices, such as NetŒix, which nd B.C. an at­trac­tive (and aord­able) place to shoot. Prem Gill, CEO of Cre­ative BC, is the one dish­ing out the all-im­por­tant tax cred­its and pitch­ing the prov­ince’s cul­tural sec­tor—lm and TV, dig­i­tal me­dia, mu­sic and pub­lish­ing—to in­vestors around the world.
