NIVERVILLE TO BECOME HOLLYWOOD OF THE NORTH


Friday, March 24, 2023 - The Manitoba government is hailing a $30-million private sector investment that will create 300 new jobs over the next three years, and bolster both the economy and the province’s burgeoning film and production industry.


Volume Global and Julijette Inc. have announced the development of Jette Studios, a state-of-the-art, full-service film and television studio village in Niverville that leverages the latest technology and includes 18,581 sq.-ft. of studio space. Construction will be completed in two phases starting this summer.


The Manitoba government has also committed to $40.6 million worth of infrastructure investments in and around Niverville in its five-year Multi-year Infrastructure Investment Strategy to support one of the fastest-growing areas of the province, Piwniuk noted.


“Today’s announcement demonstrates what can be achieved through collaboration, partnership and a lot of hard work,” said Mayor Myron Dyck, Town of Niverville. “We thank the Manitoba government for their investment in the much-needed infrastructure upgrades that will trigger this significant economic development project.”


The Manitoba Film and Video Production Tax Credit is one of the most competitive in North America. Since being introduced in 2017, it has become a stable incentive for attracting production to the province. Last year, 122 projects benefitted from the tax credit that supported $525 million in production over a 30-month period. As a result of Jette Studios being located outside Winnipeg, productions will receive an additional five per cent rural tax credit.
