Nova Scotia has announced it will contribute $8 million toward the building of a new sound stage as part of a $23-million package to support film and television production.
Premier Tim Houston said today the funding is a signal to international producers that Nova Scotia is a place where they can do business.
Houston says a sound stage is key to increasing the local industry’s capacity to do more work year-round.
The facility is expected to cost $20 million, with the remaining funds coming from private investors.
The government funding also includes $15 million over five years to boost local film and television productions.
