$2.5 million is coming through the province’s Nothern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOFHC) to support five film and television projects in the city.

The following projects are receiving funding:

  • $500,000 for Shaftsbury Rex V Inc, to bring two episodes of Citytv’s original series “Hudson & Rex” to the North Bay area. The special episodes will feature the beloved crime-solving canine Rex, on an exciting new adventure in Northern Ontario. 
  • $500,000 for CBTB Productions Inc for a film called Christmas By The Book, shot in and around North Bay 
  • $500,000 for Devils Breath Films Ontario Inc for a film called Devil’s Breath, shot in and around North Bay 
  • $500,000 for Hanger 18 Night Media Inc for a film called Junction Row
  • $500,000 for Purgatory Jack Productions to produce the feature film Purgatory Jack

MPP Vic Fedeli says the north’s film and television sector will continue to see targeted investments from his government, and today’s announcement will help solidify the North’s reputation as a first-rate production centre in North America.

“The support of NOHFC for Film & Television Industry in Northern Ontario is unparalleled and in many instances becomes the key to unlocking of complicated financing structures of indie film productions. The availability of crew and support spaces up North has also grown tremendously in the past few years, which gives even more confidence for producers from Southern Ontario or foreign producers to come and shoot their projects in Northern Ontario,” said Pasha Patriki, Producer of Hanger 18 Media.
