FilmPEI Building the Film Industry on Prince Edward Island

Welcome to FilmPEI!

New Name.  New Space.  More Resources.

FilmPEI is Prince Edward Island’s film-focused cultural hub offering space, equipment and resources to local and visiting filmmakers and productions. 

Building on our 40 year history as the Island Media Arts Cooperative, the organization recently rebranded to FilmPEI and moved to a larger location. Our new 3000 square foot space  is up and running and in a few months will include a sound stage, upgraded edit suites, sound booth,  and all kinds of other resources.

FilmPEI is a place to support and encourage filmmakers at all levels, and a space to inspire excellence in film, video and new media projects.

HELP US WRITE OUR EPIC STORY

FilmPEI (formerly IMAC) has been the primary organization for the film industry on Prince Edward Island for over three decades. FilmPEI also acts as the ambassador to visiting productions looking to shoot and crew in PEI, and represents the province and its filmmakers at internationally relevant markets and festivals. 

  The production industry in Canada is a major contributor to the GDP with $6.83 billion production volume in 2016 alone. It is also a high employer of educated young people and a very attractive industry for youth and newcomers.

With higher paying full-time equivalent jobs for a wide cross-section of departments including crew, actors, musicians, construction, transportation, catering, accountants, lawyers, etc., a thriving film industry will contribute heavily to the economy of Prince Edward Island.  

 

The province announced its cultural strategy in 2017 in which the film sector figured heavily. In order to ensure this investment develops a thriving film industry, FilmPEI is tripling its space and equipment inventory.

FilmPEI is seeking out businesses and individuals to donate funds to the organization so we can create a solid base from which to support a vibrant and economically viable film industry.
