Screening Under the Steeple 2016


Join us in celebrating CVAF’s 25th Anniversary and the local arts with a free late night screening at the Artesian on 13th.

Each year, the Filmpool joins the Cathedral Village Arts Festival (CVAF) celebration with a screening of members’ works.

Each year, CVAF also has a theme – and this year it’s PAINT THE TOWN!

All are welcome, but parental guidance is advised for strong language.


The Cathedral Village Arts Festival is a creative celebration of community through the arts. From May 23 to May 28, 2016 Cathedral area residents invite their neighbours in Regina and visitors from afar to celebrate the gifts that arts and culture bring to our community.

Announcing the Filmpool’s Telefilm Micro-Budget Production Program nominee

The Filmpool is very pleased to announce that Filmpool Production Member Daniel Beaulieu’s animated short web series, “Snot Bubbles” has been selected by the Filmpool as its 2016 Telefilm Canada’s Micro-Budget recommended applicant.

The Micro-Budget Production Program targets emerging Canadian talent, supporting them in the production and promotion of their first feature-length film or web series, with an emphasis on the use of digital platforms for marketing, distribution and audience engagement. There were many great submissions – thank you!

In the series, a town faces an uncertain future when the keystone of its economy, the lumber mill, is shut down. Woven through the main narrative are the stories of adolescents coming of age, and the challenges they face in their personal lives, as well as in regards to the greater economic issue at hand.

Welcome our new Production Coordinator

The Filmpool is pleased to announce the hiring of Logan Vanghel as its new Production Coordinator! Originally hired as a summer student back in 2014, Logan has been working at the Filmpool since then in both part-time and full-time capacities. A recent graduate from the University of Regina’s Department of Film Program, Logan brings to the position an impressive professional combination of production, administration and employee experience. The Filmpool feels extremely fortunate in having Logan here to support the Filmpool’s membership and their production needs.


Over the past two years, Logan has been a delight to work with, and has continually demonstrated a strong commitment to the organization. We are confident that he will continue to successfully support the Filmpool and its mandate throughout the course of his employment. If you get a chance, please congratulate Logan on his new full time position at the Filmpool!

Message from the Executive Director

Hello Filmpool Members!

I know it’s hard to believe, but the end of March means it’s Filmpool membership renewal time again!

The Filmpool is extremely grateful for your membership this past year and of course we would like nothing more than to receive your support by renewing for 2016 – 2017.

My hope is that we’ve been able to support your film related needs and interests over the past year. Many of you have been directly involved with production and/or post-production activities this past year and I’m sure that our staff members have done everything possible to support you with your endeavours. Others join the Filmpoool to become part of our arts community and to network/connect with like-minded artists and film enthusiasts. But regardless of why you join, we are very appreciative of your support. Your annual contribution is how this place keeps its doors open and has been for almost 40 years! That’s right – next March 16, 2017 will be the Filmpool’s 40th birthday! When I think of literally the thousands of film projects we’ve supported over the years – not to mention the hundreds of exhibitions, workshops, outreach activities, as well as the Splice Magazines, newsletters, etc. – we have a great deal to be proud of. The Filmpool has serviced our community exceedingly well. But it’s only made possible through support from our incredible members, both past and present.
