Hallmark Channel’s latest original Christmas movie “Our Christmas Mural” brings the spirit of the holidays to life through beautiful artwork and a budding romance.
Directed by Tara Johns from a script of Alan Donahue, the movie follows a single mom Olivia, who is fired from her job at an art gallery and is suffering from emotional pain. As she returns to her hometown, she unexpectedly enters an art competition to paint a mural by Christmas Eve and fall for her rival in the Christmas event.
The movie is set in a small town of New Hampshire but wasn’t filmed in the US. So where exactly was Our Christmas Mural filmed? Let’s find out the filming locations that set the scene for this heartwarming story.
Our Christmas Mural Filming Locations
Our Christmas Mural was filmed in and around Montreal and surrounding communities in Quebec, Canada. Filming occurred from August 28, 2023 through September 25, 2023.
Neshama Productions confirmed through their Instagram post that they opened cameras on August 28 in Montreal. They wrote:
Neshama Entertainment is excited to announce that we are going to camera today, in Montreal, Quebec, to begin filming Our Christmas Mural. The project will shoot over the coming weeks.
Casting Workbook also gave out a call to hire the cast members for the holiday movie. The casting call also revealed that the shooting took place in and around Montreal and surrounding areas under the title of The Christmas Mural.
Montreal stands in for the fictional small town in New Hampshire where the movie is set. This culturally rich city is known for its European charm, cobblestone streets, historic Old Montreal neighborhood and vibrant music and arts scene – a fitting backdrop for a movie centered around a mural painting competition.
Over the years, Montreal has become renowned for its colorful street art and murals beautifying buildings across various neighborhoods.
The popular Under Pressure annual graffiti festival invites artists to legally create large-scale public art, emphasizing creative youth engagement and community improvement.
With its picturesque urban settings and a supportive infrastructure for TV and film production, Montreal has attracted numerous major motion picture projects like “The Naughty Nine,” “Never Been Chris’d,” “Single All The Way” and “Fugueuse.”
Other Shooting Locations
The production took advantage of charming small shops, cafés and parks as backdrops surrounding the Montreal. Nearby countryside landscapes and petite villages would make for ideal Christmas mural competition and painting scenes as well.
The blend of urban and rural scenery spotlights the province’s natural beauty and unique architecture. Though specific landmarks are not known, there’s nothing much to share because the whole movie is about a painting a mural, we don’t know the name of that huge wall.
Tristan D Lalla, who stars as Cody in the film shared some bts pics over Instagram.
