Production[edit]

Development[edit]

North of Albany was announced on June 18, 2019, when Telefilm Canada revealed three films that they would fund in the upcoming months.[7] On December 16, 2019, the production company SODEC announced that they would also finance the film.[8] In an interview, director and co-writer Marianne Farley revealed that she got the idea for North of Albany after her car broke down while she was visiting her brother in the United States.[5] Calling the mishap a "shitty adventure", Farley wrote the initial screenplay for the film alongside Claude Brie, her spouse at the time.[2] Farley and Brie also produced the film under their own production company, Slykid & Skykid.[3]

Filming[edit]

North of Albany was set to begin filming in July 2020, but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[9][10] Originally planned to be filmed in the Adirondacks, where the film takes place, the film finally began filming in Abercorn, Quebec on October 7, 2020, with the hopes of concluding on November 16.[4][5] To respect COVID-19 protocols and safety measures, the crew had to wear masks, practice social distancing, and receive frequent temperature measurements while working.[11]

Filming also took place in the city of Montreal, in locations such as the Laurentian Mountains, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec.[2][12] According to Joëlle Péloquin, the film's artistic director, scenes and exterior shots were additionally filmed in Châteauguay, the Entrelacs, Lanaudière, and in the village of Abercorn, Quebec.[6]
