Use Us as a Film Set

Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore, Gabriel Byrne, Ethan Hawke, Gillian Anderson, Robert Duvall, Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Maury Chaykin, Paul Gross, Rebecca Jenkins, Daniel MacIver, Sandra Oh and Ellen Page have all starred in films shot in Shelburne.


The historic waterfront serves as a great set for historic films – electrical cables are buried, the heritage streetscapes are authentic, the development across the water minimal.


The town itself serves as a great contemporary small town setting. Residents, businesses and the museum all have experience in hosting shoots.


Many residents have experience as extras, at making props and building sets. Contact us to explore how Shelburne can host your film.
