FLOAT With Andrea Bang & Robbie Amell: Where did it Film in BC?

Canadian romance Float, with Andrea Bang (Kim’s Convenience) and Robbie Amell (Upload), filmed in some stunning British Columbia locations in the late summer of 2021.

Float is available on digital and on demand. It was released in selected theatres on February 9th in time for Valentines Day.

The beach romance centres on Waverly (Andrea Bang), who impulsively decides to spend her summer before college in a beach town, where she finds herself falling for local lifeguard Blake (Robbie Amell). Soon, Waverly has to decide between her pre-planned future of becoming a doctor and following her heart.

In Kate Marchant’s original WattPad story, which racked up over 25 million reads on the Toronto app, Waverly was not written as Asian. Director Sherren Lee worked with Marchant to bring some of her own background to the character via The Hollywood Reporter.

Robbie Amell produced the film as well as co-starring as the local lifeguard Blake.

Kate wrote such an incredibly touching and relatable love story. I hope the fans are as excited as I am to see these characters come to life — Robbie Amell in a statement.

  1. Hi

    I loved the film Float. In one scene the CN tower is seen in the background, but I understand the movie was entirely filmed in BC. Was this picture put in for context?
