The NB Film Co-op is a non-profit, charitable organization involved in the production of 16mm and digital video films. It was formed in 1979.
The Co-op provides broad-ranging support (workshops/training, creative support and mentoring, grant writing assistance, equipment, human resources, socials, informal writer/director/actor labs) It also presents diverse quality films and videos through its annual provincial Film Festival.
The Co-op also seeks to develop the talents and amplify the voices of NB artists who are looking for the opportunity to express their views in film and video. It is an inclusive and welcoming community that seeks to encourage diverse voices to share their stories. The Co-op does not produce projects for people. Co-op members produce their own projects once they have fulfilled the membership requirements.
The NB Film Co-op acknowledges that the land on which it operates is the traditional unceded territory of theW?last?kwiyik, Mi'kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati. The NB Film Co-op respects the history, spirituality, and culture of the W?last?kwiyik, Mi'kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati people and that of other Indigenous people who have migrated here. It is the intention of the organization to be a strong ally by promoting self-directed growth in the Indigenous media arts.
