Moviemaker magazine ranks Calgary 10th on list of ‘best places to live and work’ (thechronicleherald.ca)
Moviemaker magazine has ranked Calgary the 10th best place to live and work for moviemakers in its annual Top 25 list, touting the city’s “sound stages galore, great crews and production services that are ready when you are.”
It’s the first time Calgary made the list in Moviemaker, a leading industry publication that comes out quarterly and offers “profiles, advice, insider tips and product reviews.” According to a news release from Calgary Economic Development, its rankings are based on surveys, recent productions, personal visits to locations, a study of the city’s business environment and its quality of life.
The list puts Calgary ahead of Toronto and just behind Vancouver and Montreal among Canadian cities. It also ranks higher than Seattle, Kansas City, Washington, D.C., Portland, Baltimore, San Diego and Dallas, among others. New York City and Los Angeles were not included in the Top 25, earning the top two “hall of fame” spots on the list.
