Which building is HFS?
When and how did HFS start?
HFS opened its doors to the industry in 2019, but the idea of the expendables/rentals/studio hybrid was born 8 years prior. A hole was noticed in Hamilton for accessibility to basic filmmaking needs. We thought “Why are we driving an hour away for a single roll of gel? Let’s fill that gap, and make it more convenient for local filmmakers to create!”
What makes HFS different from other film studios?
We are Hamilton’s one-stop-shop for all things film. The bottom line does not define us; we are here to expand the reputation of Hamilton’s film industry. We source in as many local and/or Canadian vendors as possible to our retail shop. The city is booming for film, and we want to assist in its growth in any way we can.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept all methods of payment, including e-transfer, cheque, debit, or credit. A small 3% fee will be added for all credit card transactions--sorry!
