Vancouver Film Studios’ full-service production facility is uniquely designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding film, television and commercial projects. We have erected 12 purpose-built sound stages and assembled a suite of support services that provide a convenient production experience. VFS has hosted more than 100 feature films and TV series, including award-winning Hollywood blockbusters. We’re located on a secure, multi-acre lot, just 15 minutes from downtown and 25 minutes from the airport.
Owned and operated by the McLean family of The McLean Group of Companies, Vancouver Film Studios story began as various warehouses on a large land assembly in East Vancouver. Our studios were once home to a gift centre, a mattress factory, a stonemasonry, a commercial dry cleaner, a bakery, an electronics store, an elevator test facility, a tools wholesaler and a cigarette maker. Since acquiring Northstar International Studios in 1987 and rebranding to Vancouver Film Studios in 1999, custom sound stages have been built alongside mill spaces and offices spaces to serve the growing needs of international and North America filmmakers and producers.
Our full-service film and television studio facility features an array of support services, provided by four sister companies. Each one is fully owned and managed by The McLean Group of Companies. These businesses include Pacific Backlot Services, Signal Systems, Blackcomb Helicopters and Gun Lake Pictures. The four companies combine to create one of the most comprehensive production facilities in the world.
