The Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre plays a critical role as an advocate for the accessibility of independently produced film, contributes to the creation of a culture receptive to artist-made moving image work, and remits royalties to artists for the exhibition of their works.

Founded in 1967, we represent 1000+ filmmakers worldwide and over 3500 titles. Our catalogue holds all formats including more than 1000 prints on celluloid as well as digital media from feature length to short works in all genre.

Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre has Canada’s most significant historical collection of avant-garde experimental films. We are also a leader in queer cinema representation, documentary, animation and contemporary work in all forms. Our catalogue includes some of Canada’s most original and well-respected works of art on film by some of Canada’s most celebrated artists.
