KootenayFilm.com is a project begun by The Civic Theatre in Nelson, BC, a community-inspired centre for film presentation and creation, community programming, and thought-sharing.
This collaborative effort aims to build relationships within the local Screen Based Industry (SBI), with a goal to improve connection and collaboration between SBI professionals living and working the Kootenay Columbia Film Region and improve the economic viability of this sector in the Kootenays.
We are gaining insights from a group of SBI professionals in our area, who are helping to define how to serve this local economic and creative sector.
