Lights, Camera, Action

As one of Vancouver Islands most prestigious film locations, it is no wonder directors, film crews, and photographers have been drawn to the beauty of Hatley Park for over 80 years. Hatley Castle and its heritage gardens have been showcased internationally in feature films and made for TV movies.  Our unique setting and architecture makes Hatley Park a desirable location for film crews world-wide.

As one of Canada’s largest national historic sites, protecting our heritage lands is a priority when hosting film crews. Our Film Liaison is on site to share valuable guidelines that will help preserve and protect the heritage site for years to come.

If you are considering a site visit of our property, please contact the Vancouver Island South Film & Media Commission to arrange a suitable time.
