We thank Bavaria Film and ARD/Degeto for their confidence in us and in our Canadian crew. All of us have learned a great deal from this German-Canadian enterprise.
Another big thank you goes out to our great team and to our wonderful actors, who worked hard together to make sure the spirit of the screenplays – inspired by the German sentiment Sehnsucht, or longing, for an ideal place – did not get not lost in translation.
Vancouver Bay is a mini-series of two MOWs commissioned by German broadcaster ARD/ Degeto and produced by Bavaria Fernsehproduktion GmbH from Munich, Germany. Red Cedar Films is proud to have been assigned Canadian service producer for the movies, which were shot in Vancouver, Bowen Island, Brittania Beach and Squamish.
The films deal with a group of German-Canadians who run a beautiful lodge secluded from nearby metropolis Vancouver. They are expected to be aired on German television in 2015.
