We all have this perception that Hollywood equals where all movies are made, but there are actually a lot of movies that are filmed outside of Hollywood and outside of the United States altogether. A lot of them are actually on Netflix. If you've ever been Netflix bingeing and think you recognized a filming location, chances are you're probably right.

Canada offers a variety of landscapes to film productions which is probably why we're such a hot spot for filming. We're usually home to more lower budget films, but we managed to find some well know movies filmed in Canada, which also got 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. 

To All The Boys I've Loved Before 

Rating: 97% on Rotten Tomatoes 

To All The Boys I've Loved Before was the most watched Netflix original of 2018 and I'm pretty sure the world was obsessed with it. It was filmed in Vancouver and stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo. This movie put both these actors on the map. The two are currently shooting a sequel and filming other huge projects. 

To All The Boys I've Loved Before is the perfectly executed rom-com. It follows two highschoolers who agree to fake dating in order to make their crushes jealous. What makes the film so unique is it's soul-crushing family moments that mean so much more to the audience than the scripts love triangles. 

It's also directed by a woman! You'd be supporting Canada and Women in film with this watch!
