Welcome to Nova Scotia! Our province has been an in-demand location for regional and international filmmakers for decades. Located in eastern Canada and almost completely surrounded by ocean, Nova Scotia offers a variety of unique and spectacular locations. Whether your production requires downtown urban sophistication, small-town ambience, or miles of unspoiled coastline, we have it all.
With soundstage space and an environmental pool facility (Survival Systems Training) used to create realistic marine and underwater scenes, Nova Scotia has the state-of-the-art infrastructure to bring your production to life. Our experienced locations manager is standing by to create a FREE digital image package with inspirational Nova Scotia locations that perfectly match your script. We also offer financial support for incoming location scouts – contact us for more details!
Browse through the location photos below, or for more selection take a look at our ReelScout portal (please note that these are public listings only, for private listings please contact our locations manager).
For film permits within the Halifax Regional Municipality, please contact the Halifax Film Office. When filming outside the HRM, film permits/permissions are handled through the individual town’s municipal offices. Contacts can be provided by Screen Nova Scotia, or your local production manager and/or locations manager.
