Martini Film Studios today announces a new studio development that could raise Greater Vancouver’s film capacity by as much as 15 percent. The new facility will feature over 600,000 square feet of purpose-built soundstages, offices and production support buildings built across more than 25 acres in Langley, 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
Metro Vancouver is home to approximately two million square feet of film-ready soundstage space, and Martini Film Studios’ new campus will dedicate at least 300,000 square feet to soundstages, representing a significant infusion of new film stock. The development is currently undergoing design and planning based on industry and client consultation.
This announcement marks the region’s first major studio development since Martini Film Studios first opened the doors to its 250,000 square feet of combined studio facilities two years ago. Upon completion of this new campus, Martini Film Studios will more than triple its current capacity and become the largest provider of film studio facilities in the Lower Mainland.
According to research from the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC), the film industry added $3.8 billion to the local economy in 2018. The same research finds that the industry has added $18.7 billion to the local economy since 2012, including $10.2 billion in wages paid directly to British Columbians.
Since its opening, Martini Film Studios has enjoyed close partnerships with Netflix and MBS Equipment Company. Current productions filming at Martini Film Studios include The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Warner Bros./Netflix), Another Life (Netflix), and Snowpiercer (TBS).
“We’ve enjoyed phenomenal support from our industry partners and the entertainment community since launching Martini Film Studios. It’s been an incredible experience. Space is in huge demand, and with the industry thriving and the growth potential for the film and television business across all of B.C., we’re proud to expand our services for the sector.”
