Each of these exciting films was made right here in Ontario with support from the OMDC’s Film Fund, which provides funding to Ontario producers for feature films, and has generated an estimated $423.5 million in GDP since its inception.

“OMDC drives investment and job creation in Ontario by working with talented local producers and attracting international productions as well,” says Karen Thorne-Stone, CEO of OMDC. “Our multi-billion dollar creative economy is putting us on the map and showing audiences all around the world, what Ontario has to offer!”
