Tasmania's capital is one of the stars of a new feature film being shot in the city.
'Arctic Blast' stars U-S actor Michael Shanks, as he leads a battle to save the world from a series of huge blasts of ice fog that are causing deadly snap-freezing.
The film's Australian and Canadian producers started filming on Monday, and will shoot for a total of 18 days.
One of the executive producers, Pierre David, says when he films in Canada, local cities are often represented as being in the U-S, but that is not the case with 'Arctic Blast'.
"This script is written for Hobart. It says Hobart, it has Hobart, we don't change the licence plate, we don't change anything, we have emergency vehicles from Hobart, we have police vehicles from Hobart.
It is scheduled for worldwide release in the latter half of 2010.
