Film, Television & Movie Production Housing in Winnipeg

July 23, 2019 by Roseman

Roseman is Committed to Accommodating all of our Guests

At Roseman, we’ve made it our mission to accommodate all of our guests to the best of our ability. Staying in a hotel room can have many limitations that can prevent our guests from feeling at home and working to the best of their abilities when travelling to create a film production. A great example of this is when a large film or television production crew travels to complete a project.

We know that life is just too big for a hotel room. Television or film productions can take months or even a year to complete. If you were away from home for that long, wouldn’t you rather stay in an accommodation that has everything you need to feel at home, leaving you refreshed and comfortable? Hotels lack some of the amenities you need to live your life and keep up with your regular routine. Our suites have the amenities you need to keep up with those routines and accommodate larger groups comfortably.

Manitoba Film Production Tax Credit

The province of Manitoba offers one of the most competitive tax credits to film production companies in Canada. Production companies receive up to 65% with the cost-of-salaries tax credit or 30% on eligible Manitoba expenditures with the cost of production tax credit. These tax credits make Winnipeg one of Canada’s most popular filming locations and a very attractive place for film production companies to make their next feature film!

Thanks to the incentives available from the province of Manitoba, production houses have started to film more productions in Winnipeg and the areas surrounding the city. After consulting some people that work in the film industry, we found out that most temporary accommodations cannot meet the needs of the film and television production industry. Given that so many productions companies are deciding to film in Winnipeg there is a growing need for proper corporate housing for the film industry.

It’s incredible to think that these iconic films were filmed in the heart of Winnipeg. The city has some of the best film locations that production studios could ask for. From small budget independent films and television shows, to big-budget productions from larger film studios, Winnipeg has everything that the entertainment industry needs to create their next big film. Roseman is proud to be able to accommodate film crews and production companies while they create their masterpieces in the city of Winnipeg.

Flexible Movie Production Housing

Given that some film and television production projects take longer than others, it can be a hassle to re-book hotel rooms and move from room-to-room during your stay in Winnipeg. Hotels can make it difficult for production companies to provide accommodations for their staff. What the entertainment industry needs is an accommodation that will work with them to provide a solution that makes it easy for the cast and crew to focus on their production.

We offer flexible leases so that you can extend your stay in our suites without having to re-book or move. This is ideal for production companies that may need a bit more time in their accommodations to finish a project. There’s no moving from room-to-room when you stay in a Roseman suite or accommodation, this is your new home away from home.

Convenient Production Housing

When you book a hotel room, it’s usually under the name of one individual. Roseman understands that sometimes different people may be staying in the same accommodation and that they may need to come and go during the production as well. To accommodate this, Roseman offers long term stays to movie production companies that do not require a specific name. This means that your production staff can come and go as needed without having to get a keycard from the front desk of a hotel.

Film production companies are also able to rent out multiple rooms from Roseman to help accommodate as many members of your production staff as needed. That way, you will always have a room for your staff to stay in and they can conveniently go back to the suite when needed without the hassle of checking in at a hotel.

Although this may seem nominal, the added convenience of a Roseman executive suite can make the difference of feeling like a guest in a hotel or feeling truly at home in one of our suites. When your production staff stays in a Roseman accommodation, they will have the peace of mind they need to relax, recharge, and be ready to get work done on the film set.
