Filmpool Mandate

We are situated on Treaty 4 Territory, the original lands of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation.

 

The Filmpool serves the broader Saskatchewan Filmmaking community that encompasses treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10.

 

We are all treaty people and we are committed to a decolonial approach as an organization

The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative is a non-profit artist-run centre which supports, encourages, and assists independent, visionary filmmaking in Saskatchewan.

BRIEF HISTORY

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 several events such as workshops and screenings and publish regular editions of our magazine, Splice. The Filmpool membership’s objectives are executed by a volunteer Board and committees in cooperation with paid staff.

 

PROGRAMMING

To serve our mandate, the Filmpool provides programming in five key areas; Production, Workshops, Exhibition, Communications and Outreach. The Filmpool provides professional development opportunities in film production and exhibition for our members through these programming initiatives. We strive to develop audiences for independent motion pictures and maintain alliances with other cultural organizations.
