Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative (SFC)
The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative is a non-profit artist-run centre which supports and assists independent visionary film and video production in Saskatchewan. The Filmpool is committed to developing an awareness and appreciation of independent film which reflects the individual and collective cultural expression of Saskatchewan people.
To serve our mandate, the Filmpool provides programming in five key areas; Production, Workshops, Exhibition, Communications and Outreach. Through these programming initiatives the Filmpool provides professional development opportunities in film production, and exhibition for our members. We strive to develop audiences for independent motion pictures and maintain alliances with other cultural organizations.
Founded in 1977, the Filmpool has a proud history of promoting and assisting independent film production and its contribution to Saskatchewan’s cultural expression. We provide our members with film and sound editing facilities, 16mm production equipment and regular funding opportunities. We host a number of events such as workshops and screenings and provide the public with regular editions of Splice magazine and episodes of Splice TV. The Filmpool is committed to the production of independent, indigenous film, which reflects the individual and collective cultural expression of Saskatchewan filmmakers.
The Filmpool membership’s objectives are met by a volunteer Board and committees in co-operation with paid staff.
