Timmins is one of six northern cities participating in a database of crew members for locally shot movies and TV shows.

It’s through Cultural Industries Ontario North, or CION.

Film programs and reporting supervisor Rob Riselli says sign-up is free on the CION website.

“We made a point of highlighting our crew from our six main production centres: Thunber Bay, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, North Bay and Parry Sound – their talents and being user friendly.”

Riselli adds:  “We would also encourage producers to sign up through our VIP profile, to access the over 900 current profiles.”

The Timmins Economic Development Coorporation is hoping the database attracts productions to our city.
