FILM CULTURE | Our commitment to enhancing the culture and appreciation of cinema includes providing resources that can be accessed easily by the public — including our our extensive book, stills, and journal collection in our Film Reference Library; as well as our ever-popular Program Guide. We also house and maintain the West Coast Film Archive, which holds 16mm and 35mm prints from BC filmmakers, the National Film Board, and other notable Canadian filmmakers.

Whether your interest is in contemporary or historical filmmaking, or in local, national, or international writers, actors, or directors, we encourage you to explore these resources and discover more about whatever makes cinema an essential experience for you.
