We are thrilled to introduce our newest team member, Dorian Rowe, as the Film Commissioner in the Edmonton region. Dorian’s first day with us will be November 23, 2022.
Dorian Rowe has been a leader in the Canadian motion picture industry for more than two decades. He has worked in a variety of production and post-production roles including as a writer and editor and as showrunner of two unscripted series. Always keenly involved in the bigger picture of cultural industry growth, he served on many boards and committees prior to joining the provincial Crown corporation responsible for screen industries in Newfoundland and Labrador. There, and in government, his responsibilities have included working with the music industry, delivering film industry professional development programs, spearheading the establishment of an interactive digital media tax credit, and advocating for the successful creation of an all-spend film tax credit. As co-chair of the National Tax Credit Committee for many years, he is deeply familiar with screen industries incentive offerings across Canada and internationally. While responsible for film tax credit and equity investment programs, and serving as provincial film commissioner, production activity more than doubled on his watch.
Please join us in welcoming Dorian! We are excited to have you join us and can’t wait to see what we’ll accomplish together!
