"Their studio is beautiful. Plus we rented all our location equipment and purchased all our expendables at HFS. I would highly recommend HFS to anyone shooting in Hamilton."

Hamilton is the Second Busiest Film Location in Ontario — 45 minutes from Toronto and Buffalo

Once production companies discover the many benefits of filming in Hamilton, they keep coming back! It's not just the extra tax credits you get for filming here!

“I love Hamilton, I love it. It has some of the greatest stores, book stores, restaurants. It’s really a transforming city... But also what I love is the energy and I think the city is incredibly generous with filmmakers. It really is and it makes a huge difference. If I have it my way, I’ll have a studio there soon when I recuperate. I love the city.”

~ Guillermo del Toro, Toronto International Film Festival (2017)

A City of Waterfalls — and more!

See for yourself what Oscar-winner Guillermo del Toro is talking about! You'll love filming in Hamilton's over 550 film-friendly locations, all within a very small drivable area. Two hundred distinct neighborhoods means it's a city of contrasts standing shoulder-to-shoulder: gritty industrial, historic mansions, warehouses and foundries from the 1800's, modern state-of-the-art buildings, alleyways, waterfront ports and piers, sandy beaches, thousands of acres of parkland, waterfalls, bridges, marinas, shipping docks, railway shunting yards, a heritage village, and a warplane heritage museum, all surrounded by thousands of acres of farmland, conservation areas, and landscapes.
