North Film Co. has been steadily growing each year since opening, so it's always interesting to hear about our roots and what has driven us to where we are today.
North Film Co. was originally founded in 2001 as “Northern Output” by CEO Russ De Jong and steadily started growing as a one-stop-shop for video productions. In 2015 after meeting director Cat Hostick the company started to take off with Cat being an integral piece of the puzzle. The name “North Film Co.” was taken on and the power couple in life and business started building the empire it is today.
North Film Co. helped to forge over 50 feature films & television shows in over 15 countries while establishing a deep history of success. Our shooting has spanned from the skyscrapers of Toronto to the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. We endured the extreme conditions of Northern Ontario in -40C(-104F) on a frozen lake to +53C(127.4F) in the sweltering heat of the New Mexico desert!
