Our Mission

To encourage a City of Culture by nurturing and promoting diverse cultural initiatives that contribute to the quality of life, vibrancy and health of all citizens of Winnipeg.

What We Do:

The Film and Special Events Office is a method for City government to ensure that its policies regarding The Arts are coordinated, thoughtful and beneficial to all. The Office created another way for the City to directly nurture and serve the creative spirit in all its forms by providing civic expertise, support and services.

The role of the Film and Special Events Office within the structure of the City of Winnipeg is many-faceted, touching on every aspect of culture.

The Office facilitates municipal policy and planning to have a positive impact on cultural initiatives.

Requests from the creative community for assistance with funding, planning and City Services are dealt with through The Office.

Part of the mandate of The Office is to make municipal government accessible and accountable to the various arts communities. We do this by making City goods and services available to needful individuals, groups or organizations.

The Office is part of an overall economic development strategy that aims to attract cultural businesses and events, spurring tourism and the creation of ancillary support services.

The Office provides effective liaison between the private and public sectors and brings together diverse communities to reach understandings beneficial for all.

Who We Are:

The Film and Special Events Office currently employs two people full-time. One phone call or email to The Office puts you in business.
