Working with the film and television industry is a very unique and special aspect of Russell Books. The thriving arts and culture scene in Victoria includes an increasing number of film productions, and we want to help support this growing industry.

What We Offer

We are able to rent, sell, and ship books for use on film sets, and we can pull books custom-tailored for a particular film or setting. We can work alongside the film crew to choose books that will work for your production, or we can make selections based on your specific needs. We offer discounted rates on shipping, as well as affordable rates for temporary rentals and purchases for productions.

If you are interested in our rates or have any questions, please contact us at or call the store directly at 250-361-4447 to speak to a manager.
