The Winnipeg Film Group (WFG) is a Canadian distribution organization that, on behalf of independent filmmakers, rents and sells Canadian film and video works to individuals, educational institutions, community groups, film festivals, broadcasters and other venues around the world.
DVDs and Blu-rays created by us or independent filmmakers are available for purchase from the WFG to institutions which include licensing fees for educational, library or classroom use for NON-PAYING AUDIENCES ONLY. For public screenings or where admission is charged, institutions, groups and schools are required to pay a separate rental fee.
Generally, prices are determined by the film’s duration, although some titles diverge from this schedule. For bulk orders (five copies+ of the same title) there may be discounts off of the listed price. Please contact us for more information!
