How the Filmpool Saved My Life: A Winnipeg Perspective

by Patrick Lowe

Splice Magazine, Summer 2007, p. 24

The author, a Winnipeg-based filmmaker, discusses how the Saskatchewan Filmpool came to his aid with affordable equipment and moral and technical support. According to Lowe, without co-ops such as the Saskatchewan Filmpool and the Winnipeg Film Group, "movie-making would not have the bottom-up infrastructure necessary to make independant filmmaking a reality."
