Main Film

Established in 1982, Main Film is an artist-run center which aims to support independent filmmakers in defining their artistic voices and cinematic vision by helping them develop and hone into their practice.

Main Film is a place dedicated to independent film creation. In particular, it acts in favor of emerging filmmakers and has for mission to put at their disposal all the means in their possession to accompany them while defining their artistic vision, which constitutes for us the only defining authority in the creation process.

We guarantee the artist’s total creative freedom no matter the form, context or intended audience.

Main Film wishes, through its various activities, to help filmmakers define themselves as artists and encourage the emergence of new cinematographic talents.

For this, we act on two levels, hand-in-hand with an artist’s consortium ideology.

We propose to filmmakers to:

  • to free themselves as much as possible from material and financial
    constraints, which limit creativity, creation and practice
  • to expand their artistic horizon alongside established artists, while paving
    the way towards an easier anchoring in the community

We put at our member’s disposal our human and material resources as well as a space dedicated to creation and a benevolent environment.

The accompanied artist is able to improve his practice, refine their author’s vision, experiment and explore their art.

We wish to work for the emergence of artists with a unique style and artistic approach, enriching, renewing and diversifying the cultural landscape through strong and bold works.

Main Film acknowledges that it is located on unceded Indigenous lands, of which the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
