Winnipeg Film Group Membership

The purchase of a Winnipeg Film Group Membership supports the ongoing growth of our organization and is required to access services from our three wings: Cinematheque, Distribution and Production.  

Membership provides access to a variety of services including: equipment and facilities rentals from the Production Centre; the eligibility to apply to various funding programs in both Distribution and Production; representation in our Distribution catalogue (via a selection process); as well as reduced admission to our Cinematheque. In addition, several of our membership categories provide eligibility to vote and/or run for elected Board of Director positions at the annual AGM.

WFG membership is open to the general public as well as filmmakers, video artists and cinema enthusiasts. We offer several membership categories designed to suit a variety of needs.  

(PLEASE NOTE: Membership categories were adjusted in October 2012. For those who are currently Basic User Members and Full User Members in good standing, all the established benefits of your membership will continue to apply until your current membership expires.)


**Must be a General Member to Purchase

The Production Add On is recommended for filmmakers and video artists seeking access to our equipment, facilities, and production insurance. 

**Must be a General Member to purchase

This membership category offers the exact same benefits as a Production Add On, but is only available to Video Pool Full User and Video Pool Producer members in good standing.

(PLEASE NOTE: This membership cannot be purchased online as proof of Full User or Producer Membership at Video Pool must be shown at time of purchase)


This membership is available to non-profit organizations wishing to support our organization and access our production and post production equipment and facilities rentals program at organizational rates. The benefits of this membership are organizational only, and do not extend down to staff, members or students of the organizational member. 

  • Cinematheque bi-monthly program guide mailings to your organization
  • Winnipeg Film Group mailings
  • Subscription to weekly WFG E-News
  • LIMITED access to a range of production equipment, including tungsten lights, grip gear and cameras. Subject to demonstration of user competency

(PLEASE NOTE: This category of membership does not provide the right to vote at our AGM, nor the right to run for our Board of Directors)


The Distribution Only Membership is intended for filmmakers not based in Winnipeg and for those filmmakers who do not wish to access any other services from the Winnipeg Film Group other than representation in our Distribution catalogue and a subscription to the weekly WFG E-News.

Please speak to Distribution staff ( / 204-925-3456 ext. 103 or ext. 105) before purchasing this membership online as it is only for those filmmakers whose films have already been selected for Distribution
