This article explains that the declining U.S. dollar have prompted film producers and production companies in Hollywood to shoot and make their movies in the U.S. When the U.S. dollar's exchange rate was higher than that of Canada's dollar, many Hollywood film studios prefer to shoot their movies in Canada. But with the decline of the U.S. dollar they are making it back to the U.S. In British Columbia, the government responded by offering more tax breaks to keep film studios from making movies in the U.S.
