The film production company Into the Forest Productions BC Inc. has recently applied to Elk Falls Provincial park and, on behalf of the crew and company, we would like to to relay some details of their work.
“Into the Forest” is a Canadian feature film produced by Bron Studios of Vancouver and Rhombus Media of Toronto and directed by Patricia Rozeman; it stars Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood. Scenes are filming all over British Columbia and the Lower Mainland, though location work at Elk Falls is significant for the large old growth trees that are accessible, picturesque and serve production well for the film’s scenes.
BC Parks has permitted the production to film in the Day Use Area in the upper parking lot and related public trails around the old growth trees.
Set up take place during the daylight hours on August 20th, 21st & 22nd. Filming dates will be on August 24th & 25th and cleanup will take place on August 2th. During setup and cleaning times, the general public will be welcomed throughout the area and accommodated as safely as possible. During filming, the support vehicles and services have been given the option of locating along the upper parking lot access road and parking area and will also be using a portion of the new parking area near the BC Hydro Interpretive Centre.
The public will have vehicle access to the park via the new BC Hydro / BC Parks parking area and the lower parking lot will remain open.
Use of all walking trails will be allowed with occasional requests for control for short periods during actual filming.
For information about the production and about filming in British Columbia, please contact Vancouver Island North Film Commissioner, Joan Miller at INfilm, the Community Affairs Liason, Gordon Harwick at Creative BC at 604-730-7232 or Into the Forest Location Manager, Hans Dayal at 604-628-3150.
