Moving Images Distribution is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples – xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations – commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our roots lie within the independent film and video community. In the 1970s, a group of talented filmmakers formed Canadian Filmmakers Distribution West which later changed its name to Moving Images Distribution in 1994. Since our beginnings in 1979, we have worked to connect audiences with innovative works by some of Canada’s internationally acclaimed media artists working in experimental, documentary, animation, short fiction and personal narrative.
Our mandate is to advance opportunities for media artists and filmmakers by linking their works with audiences to promote critical thinking, spark meaningful discussions and enhance appreciation for the media arts.
Moving Images Distribution is a not-for-profit organization registered in the province of British Columbia, Canada.
