The AFCOOP Archives will go live on June 13 with hours of films from the co-op’s 50-year history. All available to stream for FREE!
On launch day, in addition to the archive’s initial selection of films, we’ll present a specially curated Languages of Nova Scotia shorts program. It will be available to view for free until June 30 and features a selection of local shorts shot in Mi’kmaw, Scottish Gaelic, ASL and more!
The Languages of Nova Scotia shorts lineup includes:
The Party (dir. Jinos Akhtarkhavari)
L’Acteur (dir. Jana Doiron)
Slighe Agnais/A Journey for Agnes (dir. Jenny MacKenzie)
Return Flight (dir. Suzan Oram)

SUBMIT YOUR FILM NOW
There’s still time to submit your film to the AFCOOP Archives in time for launch day!
If you have work that you made with AFCOOP help we would love to include it in the archive.
Films will be digitized or ingested (if required) and stored at AFCOOP in our dedicated ‘vault’ server. But that’s not all! If you wish, we will also host your film on AFCOOP’s new streaming media service at no cost. No, it’s not too good to be true, it’s all part of the goal of making sure that every AFCOOP film lives on and can be seen in the future.
Currently, we are only taking Beta SP, Digi beta, 3/4-inch Umatic tape and digital files (whatever you got that is the best you got). We’re looking for master-level quality but if all you have is VHS we’ll take that too. We can’t take 16mm film right now but we will put out a big call for that when we’re ready.
Step 1: Fill out this form (one form per title/film)
Step 2: We’ll email you to confirm and arrange to bring your media in. That’s it!
