The Fundy Film Society (FFS) is a registered (2001), nonprofit society. Fundy Film’s original programme (January 2002–December 2015) consisted of two distinct series (Feature and Documentary) with the occasional Whimsical Wednesday screening (wW) and Special presentations. FFS became a member (2002) of the Toronto International Film Festival Group’s Film Circuit.
The Fundy Film Society offered high-quality independent, Canadian and foreign films. Our objectives remain:
- to provide community access to films rarely available in the Wolfville area;
- to provide an opportunity in our community for the study, appreciation and celebration of film and the moving image as culturally significant art forms.
Local film lovers Joan Chandler Parker, Al Whittle, Susan Hauer, Bill Zimmerman, David Reid, Anna Migliarisi, Mary Costello, Michelle Matthews, and Lee Lewis established the Fundy Film Society in Wolfville, Nova Scotia (2001).
The Society screened its first film on January 20, 2002, at the Empire Cinema, New Minas. Since that date, the Society has screened over eight hundred films. The success of Fundy Film inspired the formation of the Acadia Cinema Cooperative, Ltd. (ACC) and on November 7, 2004, the Society moved to the newly renovated and renamed Acadia Cinema’s Al Whittle Theatre, behind the Acadia marquee, 450 Main Street. The Fundy Film Society was ACC’s single largest shareholder until 2011 and continues as anchor tenant.
The Fundy Film Society holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) late autumn of each year. We welcome the participation of those interested in having a voice and a hand in the growth and development of the Society and the series. For membership and volunteer opportunities, please visit our Society Membership page. For AGM information, please check our Home page each year after September.
