Island Media Arts Cooperative (IMAC) is now officially named FilmPEI. The name change reflects the growing role of the organization to support and sustain media arts and to build a vibrant film industry on Prince Edward Island.

Along with the new name, FilmPEI is getting a new home and asking Islanders to help them build it. They have launched a crowdfunding campaign (fundrazr.com/supportfilmpei) which runs from February 1 to 28, and hope to raise $10,000 to help pay for the rebrand and the move to the new space.

“With the Province of PEI’s recent funding announcement to develop the film industry, it is an exciting time for film on the Island,” says Renee Laprise, Executive Director of FilmPEI. “A strong film industry means more jobs for all parts of the industry, from actors and set builders, to caterers and drivers. It also means more customers for restaurants and local businesses all across the Island.”

FilmPEI’s new space will include a production studio, sound booth, animation studio, editing suite, event space and more. It will be the creative hub of PEI’s film community: a place to support and encourage filmmakers at all levels; to inspire excellence in film and video; and to act as a resource for the wider arts community of PEI.

“We have already received a number of fantastic videos of support, which we will share throughout the campaign,” says Laprise. “We hope more people will join in supporting FilmPEI to build PEI’s film future.” 

FilmPEI (formerly Island Media Arts Cooperative) provides a pool of talent, resources, equipment and space for productions and to facilitate creative careers on Prince Edward Island.
