About Our Catalogue

While our website is in transition, please visit our online Screening Room to see the latest developments as well as a growing archive of Cineworks Productions. 


A Brief History:

Cineworks has produced through its various production programs such as the Production Fund and the Omnibus as well as an ever growing database of films and videos completed by Cineworks members. 

Between 1995-1999, Cineworks produced a series of four omnibus productions all based on the same low-budget, high-concept creative challenge: assemble a group of Vancouver's best independent filmmakers, give each a single roll of film stock and bare-bones equipment, and ask them to return with a 3 minute film on a pre-determined theme. The "Omnibus" section provides details on themes and the films completed within this exciting program. 

Since 2012, Cineworks has been commissioning new works through short film challenges like "Back Down The Highway" and "Intersections" that push the boundaries of how we define the moving image.  



Local Artist in Residence Program

Cinework's Local Artist in Residence Program (LAIR) gives Vancouver-based film and media artists a dedicated space to create new work. With talks, open houses, and a final screening, the residency takes place at The Annex, our analogue facilities in Railtown. With a focus on dark room processing, the Annex also features an animation stand, 16mm projector, and steenbeck. This program is made possible through the City of Vancouver.
