Camosun launches discussions for film studio

July 5, 2019

Camosun College has entered discussions with the Lexi Development Group about building a film studio, sound stage, and educational facilities for students at its Interurban campus. “Camosun delivers quality education and training that is relevant, responsive and applied, giving students the skills that employers and industry are looking for,” said Camosun President Sherri Bell. “We’re starting to explore the potential of a film studio in partnership with industry that would complement existing programs, while opening the door to educational programs that support B.C.’s film industry.” A release adds that British Columbia’s motion picture industry is expected to have nearly 13,000 job openings over the next ten years.
