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 – please refer to our Governance section to learn more about this.
WFG membership is open to filmmakers, video artists, cinema enthusiasts and the general public. We offer several membership categories designed to suit a variety of needs.
