Distribution Focus

The Winnipeg Film Group is an education, production, exhibition and distribution centre committed to promoting the art of cinema. Founded in 1974, we began distributing locally made films in 1981 to help serve Manitoba filmmakers who were creating work but didn’t have the knowledge or resources to seek out screenings or buyers for their work. Our Distribution Department represents hundreds of filmmakers and video artists from Manitoba, the Prairies and across Canada, and we have an international reputation for providing quality works and personalized service. We specialize in short films, although the works in our collection range from one-second experimental shorts to full-length documentary features. Our films span all genres, including narrative drama and comedy, animation, documentary and experimental, as well as hybrids of genres.
