A look at some of the people and productions who are making history in Alberta

Lift - Directed by Katrina Beatty

Lift – Short Film

After a cocky Edmonton pilot is grounded from flying in WWII, he and his brother search for their sense of self among the returning post-war heroes.

The Revenant

The Revenant

The crew filmed the majority of “The Revenant” in Canada. According to Looper, they filmed quite a few scenes in an area of the Canadian Rockies west of Calgary, Alberta, in Kananaskis Country.

Come True

Come True

Come True, a nightmarish, slow-burn horror film, was shot entirely in this city by filmmaker Anthony Scott Burns, who is in the process of moving back to Edmonton himself. It’s not a jump-scare kind of freak fest, but an ode to the shadows of our nightmares, of waking dreams.



A creak of floorboards, a groaning door hinge, a sense of movement in the darkness and little else. Edmonton filmmaker Kyle Edward Ball exploits this minimalism in the wee hours of the night to horrific effect in his film Skinamarink.
