About the ESIO
The Edmonton Screen Industries Office Society (ESIO) was established in 2017 by the City of Edmonton to ensure that the Edmonton Metro region becomes known nationally and internationally as a great place to start, develop, and commercialize creative content in the screen industries. We lead community efforts to create opportunities and provide support for economic development of the sector.
With early support from the Edmonton Arts Council, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, and seed financial support from the City of Edmonton, the ESIO set to work to re-establish and expand leadership roles previously assigned to the Edmonton Film Commission into an expanded vision for the growth and sustainability of all of Edmonton Metro’s creative screen enterprises and industries. This expanded scope includes adopting industries such as animation, video game development and virtual reality applications, while retaining support for the film and television industry.
ESIO’s strategy considers and addresses the challenge of a wide diversity of interests, history, and business models by approaching the sector with an entrepreneurial mindset, building on and leveraging Edmonton Metro’s existing strengths in support of more sustainable enterprises and new sector opportunities.

At the Edmonton Screen Industries Office, we recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. We respectfully acknowledge that we are situated on Treaty 6 territory, traditional lands of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, and Metis. We also encourage, support, and promote the resurgence of Indigenous knowledge and practices and are committed to empowering Indigenous creativity in the spirit of reconciliation.
