Location Filming & Photography

Commercial film and photo location shoots

Need a location for your zombie apocalypse? Romantic comedy? Police chase? We've done all that and more. We're happy to accommodate commercial film and photo location shoots across our site and in our venues.

Harbourfront Centre's waterfront location has the ability to stand in for both major cities and small towns, and our varied locations and venues provide numerous options for location shoots.

Our 10-acre site has endless film-worthy features:

  • 2 marinas
  • 2 underground parking garages
  • parkland and greenspace
  • public squares
  • a waterfront boardwalk
  • outdoor amphitheatre
  • traditional and contemporary theatre spaces
  • a pedestrian bridge
  • a pond in summer and an outdoor skating rink in winter

Our surface parking lot can accommodate production vehicles for your shoot on our site, or in the neighbourhood.

To inquire about location film shoots, please email the Filming Coordinator with the following information and we'll go from there:

  • your name and telephone number
  • the production company name and address
  • what specific shoot location you are interested in
  • what dates you are looking at for your shoot

All location shoots require permits issued by Harbourfront Centre's Planning Department, and are subject to location filming fees.

Media-related filming requests should be directed to our Media Relations department.
