North West Studio

The North West Studio produces and coproduces documentary, animation and interactive works with filmmakers and digital artists from across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut –  a vast territory that contains many different stories and points of view. In recent years, the studio has produced a string of acclaimed films and interactive projects from artists throughout the region.

With production staff based in Edmonton and Winnipeg, the studio has a slate of about 25-30 projects in development and production at any given time.

The Studio has long been a vigorous champion of Indigenous filmmaking, producing landmark works by many of Canada’s most distinguished First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists.

Our producers collaborate with independent filmmakers, digital artists and coproduction partners from across the provinces and territories to create truly distinctive documentaries, animations, and interactive projects — works that express the many viewpoints of Canada’s West and North, while capturing the hearts of audiences across the country and around the world.
