The Winnipeg Film Group is an artist-run education, production, exhibition and distribution centre committed to promoting the art of cinema. Winnipeg Film Group’s venue, Cinematheque, is an intimate movie theatre devoted to screening the very best in Canadian and world cinema.
Urban Idea was founded in the late 1980s as The Urban Idea Centre of Winnipeg to “encourage and facilitate the exchange of ideas and opinions relating to the city, the quality of urban life and future possibilities.” Urban Idea focuses on conversations and actions about placemaking and public space within the city, as viewed through the lens of the arts. Urban Idea believes that the arts play a fundamental role in the development of, and people’s relationships to, the spaces which surround us.
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
