North Hollywood is in Los Angeles.“Hollywood North” was originally coined for Vancouver, B.C.— specifically it’s originally a term the LA productions used in referencing jumping on a short 2-1/2 hr.
flight north to B.C.‘Tis moniker dates back to late 1980’s – early 1990’s as Vancouver’s the first place the.LA based movie productions started to come to avoid some writers strike and other work stoppages.
This is way before US productions started considering shooting in Toronto too— Besides Toronto’s a long 5–6’hour flight North by northeast of Los Angeles.Recently it seems the term is interchangeable with both Vancouver and Toronto!Torontonians & their tourism industry publications/websites have started using Hollywood North licentiously in reference to themselves too – It’s true that many USA productions are shooting in T.O.
— but Toronto’s also the base for a large proportion Canadian-made English-language TV/motion picture productions — The USA’s prescence doesn’t vastly eclipse the local industry the way it does in Vancouver.There are several features and obliging Canadian made tv series shot in Vancouver- but the percentage/ratio is quite small.In short, technically & historically, Vancouver has always been the actual city the “Hollywood North” slang refers to.
Also it’s NOT some “title” that get awarded or won each year — likes trophy.
There is only one Hollywood north.
It is, as the name says, north of Hollywood and is located further up the coast in British California.
