Welcome to PictureNL

Newfoundland and Labrador’s film and television industry is strong and growing. PictureNL, formally known as the Newfoundland and Labrador Film Development Corporation is the lead agency for the province for investments in film and television productions through its equity, tax credit and development programs. Through its five programs, the NLFDC offers local producers and outside producers/productions the support needed to help the province’s production sector to flourish.

PictureNL is the film commission for the province and welcomes enquiries about our filming locations, incentives, crew and any other details about shooting here. On average, over 70 percent of the funds used to make large‐scale film and television productions are leveraged from outside Newfoundland and Labrador. These national and international film and television specific investments are new money in the province’s economy that would go to production activity in other jurisdictions if not invested here.
