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.
