The Multicultural Cinema Club (MCC) was established in December 2006 to create a culture of cinema within Waterloo region by screening films, hosting discussions, creating artistic works, and encouraging community film-making. Besides hosting people interested in film-making, we are also working to make film-making technology more accessible to a wider range of people in the community who would like to gain or build skills in this area.
An incorporated not-for-profit, the Grand River Film Festival (GRFF) was born in 2007, springing from the knowledge that the Region of Waterloo is home to many people who love films, be they large-audience movies, indies, documentaries, shorts or experimental. The Region also plays host to filmmakers who create their works using its streets and countrysides for their settings, approaching 150 productions and still rising. Joining them are the growing number of people who are studying and learning the art and craft of film making. The idea: bring these audiences together in a friendly environment to share and nurture their enthusiasm for films. With seven festivals and counting, that idea has been and continues to be a solid success. Alongside festival screenings, GRFF hosts the annual SHORT Shorts competition and the educational outreach program cin-E-merge, providing emerging filmmakers and students an opportunity to network and learn from industry professionals.
