Toronto screen industry has third record-breaking year

Investment in Toronto’s domestic and foreign film, television and digital productions rose to an all-time record of $2.01 billion in 2016.

In 2016:

  • Domestic and international screen-based productions exceeded the $1-billion mark for the sixth consecutive year, with a 33-per-cent increase over the $1.55 billion reported in 2015.
  • Foreign major production investment in film and television grew to $794 million, a 49-per-cent increase from 2015. Since 2014, foreign production investment has increased by 129 per cent.
  • Investment in animation and visual effects grew to $403 million, a 179-per-cent increase from the $144.5 million reported in 2015. Since 2014, investment in this area has increased by 363 per cent from $87.1 million.
  • Television series, foreign and domestic, remains the dominant investment type in Toronto with an increase to $908 million in 2016.
  • Investment in television and digital format commercials production continued to rise to record levels, growing to $380 million, a 10-per-cent increase from the $345 million reported in 2015. Since 2014, investment in this area has increased by 95 per cent from $195 million. (Note that this type of investment is measured by Toronto but not by other levels of government.)
  • The number of location filming shoot days has seen three record breaking years, with an increase to 7,280 shoot days in 2016.

The above numbers also help to show a larger Toronto industry success story. Combining the $2 billion in investment noted above with figures from broadcasters and the interactive digital media cluster results in a total investment figure of $3.26 billion for all of Toronto’s film, television and digital media production in 2016. That figure represents a 16 per cent increase from 2015.

Los Angeles Business Mission

Mayor John Tory and Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Economic Development Committee, joined a delegation of 22 Toronto companies and organizations to Los Angeles from January 23 to 25, 2017.

Los Angeles-based studios continue to be a strong investor in Toronto’s market, responsible for over $800M in direct investment in 2016. The main objectives of the mission were:

  • To re-connect with the City’s key industry partners and investors at the Los Angeles film studios to present the deliverables and ongoing initiatives of the Five Point Plan adopted by City Council, which was a direct result of the February 2016 mission.
  • To cultivate relationships with prospective investors, companies and key stakeholders to pursue new business opportunities of high potential growth.
  • To provide a platform to network and promote Toronto internationally as an investment destination for the creative industries.
  • To support the City’s strategic priorities to increase economic vitality, create jobs, and generate investment in Toronto.
