I grew up in Sudbury, Ontario and Men With Brooms was one of the only big movies I remember filming there.  That’s all about to change thanks to David Joseph Anselmo and his company Hideaway Pictures.  David and his team are looking to kick start a booming film industry in Northern Ontario by building a studio in the city.

The team recently received approval from the city to set up studio space in an old hockey arena with construction of a new facility planned in the future.

This is fantastic news for the area as the development will surely attract more filmmakers to the North.  Not to mention this project will aid the talented filmmakers who are already living in the region.  I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Sudbury’s film industry.
