The decision to move to the next stage of discussions with the Visionary Group to build a film studio is the result of a Request for Pre-Qualification released in September 2022. The Request for Pre-Qualification invited respondents to become pre-qualified to design, build and fund a film studio and digital media education centre in exchange for a 99-year lease.

It is anticipated that the discussions will result in a formal agreement with Camosun, which will finalize the scope, timeline and cost to build a film studio with education components.

In spring 2021, the B.C. Government provided $150,000 to aid Camosun in the exploration of educational opportunities for students in the B.C. film industry and the potential development of an on-campus film studio.
