The BC Film Commission says movies like Twilight New Moon and TV shows like Fringe helped push the province's film and TV production revenue to $1.3 billion last year, up $100 million from the year before.

The commission says revenues increased even though only 239 productions were shot in B.C. last year, compared with 260 in 2008.

The film commission says 155 of last year's total films were domestic productions, most of them TV series, while there were 84 foreign projects, almost half of them feature films.

Foreign feature film production totalled $641 million, up $200 million from 2008, while domestic production spending dropped to $217 million.

Besides the Twilight Saga films, other movie highlights from last year included The A-Team, Tron: Legacy and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

The Tourism, Culture and Arts Ministry says this year's budget includes a range of tax incentives to maintain B.C. as the third-largest production centre in North America.
