From G&M 10 Mar 2011 – “British Columbia’s Film Commission says 2010 was a strong year for the province’s film and television production industry, despite figures that show an overall drop in spending from 2009. A total of 246 productions were shot in B.C. last year – a slight increase from 2009 – but overall spending fell from $1.3-billion in 2009 to just over $1-billion in 2010.”
Interesting that the G&M headline was “Strong year for B.C. film and tv industry, despite slight drop in spending” -ed.
