Film & TV Production
The Olympic Oval is a one of Calgary's top indoor filming locations. The need for large surface areas of ice makes the Oval an ideal and unique location for winter-themed spots. The Oval is available for night-time shoots throughout the ice-in season (typically June - March of any given year). We do offer some day-time filming via special request.
Note on filming at the Oval
Pricing for filming at the Oval is dependant on the nature of your shoot, the size of your footprint and your requirements. It is important that you contact our event specialist with these details in order to determine both availability and pricing. Also, note that as a University facility, liabilities such as drones will need to be cleared by U of C Risk management. This process can take some time so we do suggest starting this process well in advance of your shoot.
