AFCOOP Fall Workshops 2023

Registration is now open for our Fall Workshop Series. AFCOOP’s Fall Workshops offer a selection of introductory filmmaking sessions designed to give participants a balanced overview of independent filmmaking in Nova Scotia. Space is limited so please register early.

AFCOOP is located at 1800 Argyle Street (Suite 303) in the Light House Arts Centre. There is a ramp to the main entrance on Argyle Street and elevators inside the lobby to the third floor, as well as gender-neutral bathrooms.

AFCOOP recognizes there are systemic inequities that create barriers for people in accessing film training. In an effort to address and recognize historical and present-day inequities, we have created a pay-what-you-can style pricing plan for our workshops. Please feel free to sign up for whatever price point you are most comfortable with, no questions asked.

$45 — Regular Rate: This rate covers the cost of paying our instructor as well as the cost of staff time to organize and promote the workshop.

$25 — Reduced Rate: This rate makes a contribution towards our costs.

$0 — FREE: This rate acknowledges that financial means should not be a barrier to becoming a filmmaker.

See this year’s lineup of workshops below. Please note that dates are tentative and subject to change—workshops may be added or removed depending on registration numbers and interest.
