"No support from the territory, in terms of a rebate or funding, is the primary reason why we're not able to shoot there," Piovesan said Thursday.
The Lesser Blessed is set in the N.W.T. communities of Fort Smith and Behchoko. But aside from some outdoor scenes, Van Camp said most of the film adaptation will probably be shot elsewhere.
"I'd love for the [N.W.T.] Film Commission to just realize this and start stepping up," he said.
