‘A Christmas Together With You’ Was Filmed in Canada

“A Christmas Together with You” (filmed under the working title “Christmas Alone Together”) was filmed in Canada, including in the Vernon and Okanagan Valley regions of British Columbia. It was filmed in August, FR24 News reported.

In downtown Vernon, one of the filming locations was in front of Towne Cinema, Roxy Cafe, and KALECO Sustainable Lifestyle. Extras were also requested, and filming was made extra fun with prizes and drawings.

One of the filming locations was Spirit Lodge at Silverstar, a bed and breakfast in the North Okanagan, British Columbia, located about 10 minutes from Vernon.

Another filming location was The Vibe Artisan Gallery in Vernon.

According to IMDb, the estimated budget for this movie was $2.5 million.

Producer Gilles Laplante told Castanet that they chose Vernon because of the beautiful locations.

Laplante said: “There’s such a vast array of great locations in Vernon and I hope to develop more projects with Vernon in mind… The thing about the Okanagan that I love the most is just the warmth and hospitality that everybody offers, everybody is so nice.”

Vandervoort wrote about starring opposite Matter:

Onset with this lovely fella. This ones a good 🥚. The real deal. #NiallMatter It’s rare to find someone as talented, kind and generous as this guy right here. Especially in show business. So grateful to have had him as my partner on this one. On a daily basis, I saw intelligence, patience, talent, generosity, empathy, strength and bravery. Thank you. That’s a wrap! 🎥”

She also shared about working with Lennix: “So grateful to be working with and learning from this gem on our new movie. Outside of us constantly singing random tunes, discussing every subject that came to mind, inventing new camera gear (we’re gonna be millionaires Harry) & dissecting life… I had a mesmerizing time watching him work and couldn’t get enough of his contagious laughter & singing. Xo Here’s to many more! 🥂”

According to IMDb, Kevin Fair was the director and Graham Locke wrote the script.

Two Horses Joined the Movie at the Last Minute Due to Fire Evacuations

There were some major wildfires going on while they filmed and some of the horses that were supposed to be used in the movie had to be evacuated.

According to the Instagram post above, Ike and Betsy had to step in at the last minute for the movie after the Clydesdales were evacuated. Horse Drawn Okanagan wrote, “Phew, what a week. Everyone is safe, healthy and happy at Horse Drawn Okanagan. Our team is made of some of the most generous, hard working, and selfless people I know, and I’m proud to be a part. The horses are pretty amazing too! 😉Now we can look forward to a feel good Christmas coming soon!”
