SIFA is an annual event to support, showcase and celebrate Saskatchewan’s dynamic filmmaking community

The province of Saskatchewan has a rich history in the production of independent film and video production, and the SIFA is an important event to further demonstrate to not only the filmmaking community, but to the entire province of Saskatchewan, of our ‘home-grown’ artistic talents and story telling abilities.


Saskatchewan is a growing province - growing in population diversity and cultural opportunity. We have always had a unique sense of provincial pride and perspective of ourselves and of the world around us. It is important we take every possible advantage in promoting our own artistic and creative talents. By so doing, this will not only reinforce our own cultural identity - in all its diversity and vibrancy, but also, it will foster new and ongoing opportunities of creativity, growth and economic success.


The annual presentation of SIFA is intended to support these objectives. It will bring Saskatchewan’s artistic and business communities together in an attempt to build a new and exciting future in Saskatchewan. The Filmpool believes it is imperative that we celebrate and showcase our own filmmakers – in order to help create new ideas, new heroes and new opportunities.
