Main Film

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 space dedicated to independent film creation. It works to frame emerging filmmakers by providing the necessary tools and mentors to accompany them in defining their artistic vision.

Main Film workshops and equipment accompany filmmakers in defining themselves as artists in Quebec’s film industry. We guaranty the artist’s total creative freedom no matter the form, context or intended audience.

We offer:

– An accessible space where filmmakers can explore their craft, free from financial constraints that limit creativity

– The possibility to work alongside and learn from renowned artists to ease into the filmmaking industry

We are especially interested in supporting emerging artists who have a unique style and experimental process. Our goal is to contribute to diversifying the artistic and cultural landscape by helping bold works of art come to light.
