Pinewood Toronto Studios Welcomes the CFC to Its Thriving Production Hub
The Canadian Film Centre’s (CFC) Production Office has moved into new digs at Pinewood Toronto Studios. Here, we have joined a number of other thriving, award-winning independent production teams, such as CFC alumnus Mark Montefiore’s New Metric Media (which just opened an office in Los Angeles); Comedy Exchange Alumnus Andrew Barnsley’s Project 10, a production company with offices in Toronto and Los Angeles; Sheridan College and SIRT (Screen Industries Research and Training Centre); and now Netflix has created a production hub at the Studios.
“Uprooting after 13 years is no small feat, but the support we’ve been given from the entire team at Pinewood has made us feel so welcome and helped facilitate a remarkably smooth transition,” says Kathryn Emslie, Chief Programs Officer, CFC. “It is exciting to be housed in this facility and to be part of such a thriving creative and production hub at Pinewood Toronto – not to mention we are based in Paul Bronfman’s previous office!”
"We're thrilled to welcome the CFC to Pinewood Toronto. The CFC plays an integral role in developing the next generation of Canadian talent, and as production in Toronto continues to soar, we are delighted to have the CFC as part our thriving community," says Paul Bronfman, Chairman of Pinewood Toronto Studios and CFC Board Member.
The CFC’s bright, beautiful, new offices will be the production team’s permanent base. It will continue to offer CFC Programs a downtown satellite space that is fully accessible and an inspiring environment in which to support CFC’s talent, alumni, and our amazing volunteer cast and crews.
