Homesteads to Hollywood

Hosted By: Liam Dawe, Ingrid Vargas

Homesteads to Hollywood is a 10 Part podcast series diving deep into the Filmmaking and TV industries of Calgary and Alberta. Alberta has a long, illustrious history of filmmaking dating back to the early 1900s, and it is growing into an even bigger hotspot for blockbuster films and TV series to shoot. But how did it get there?

The scenery is a large reason for that growth, but this series explores how Indigenous communities, high quality industry professionals, local independent film industry, and the organizations and festivals that encourage development, all play important roles in the film ecosystem of Alberta.
