In recent years, Montreal has become a pretty important filming location for big-time movies and TV shows in the industry.
Netflix’s Pieces of a Woman was shot on the island last year. The big-budget Tom Holland flick Chaos Walking was shot in the city the year before, and the X-Men franchise, John Wick, Arrival, and Mother! were all filmed across the greater Montreal area over the past few years.
Now that Academy Award-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix finished filming Ari Aster’s next film, Disappointment Blvd., right here in town, here are a handful of movies and TV shows being shot in Montreal right now, according to the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA).
ACTRA is a Canadian labour union. Its Montreal branch represents more than 3,000 professional performers working in the English-language recorded media in Quebec.
