A Tourism Langley campaign is putting spotlight on some of the most cinematic locations in the region. Their campaign ‘Holiday Lights, Cameras and Action!” offers seasonal opportunities to visitors and locals alike to get up-close and personal with the locations where many television movies have been shot.
Erinn Kredba, executive director at Tourism Langley said the campaign highlights the popular annual tradition of watching a made-for-TV movie during the holiday season.
“What may be unknown though, is that several of these heart-warming made-for-TV holiday movies have been filmed right here in the Lower Mainland — specifically, in the Township of Langley,” Kredba said.
Holiday Lights, Cameras and Action! will feature the following.
1. Map to the Stars: An interactive map highlighting local businesses and which movies were filmed at these locations. The feature is available on Tourism Langley website at tourism-langley.ca/holiday/holiday-map/.
2. Three self-guided tour itineraries leading followers to multiple locations that have been featured on film, as well as non-filming locations that complement each theme, including: ‘Vibrant Village Vibes,’ highlighting filming locations in Fort Langley; ‘Mistletoe Moments,’ for a romantic day trip through the Township; and ‘Festive Family Fun,’ featuring businesses geared to the entire family.
