Membership Benefits

Cineworks provides several tiers of memberships
to serve our various members and audiences.
While all of our public programming and workshops are accessible to the general public, a Cineworks membership will further subsidize all of our services and a Production membership is required to rent all gear and facilities.

All Cineworks members at every level are automatically signed up for our biweekly Cinenews e-mail updates and qualify to submit news and information for member recognition. In addition, only members have access to post in our online Cast/Crew/Wanted Ads , and every member has a public profile page available through Cineworks.

Other benefits to becoming a member include member-only exclusivities such as showing in our monthly Film & Media Showcase, and first access to news and opportunities relevant to all media artists practicing in the Lower Mainland and beyond.

All media art works produced through the assistance of Cineworks gear and facilities must acknowledge Cineworks in its production credit. Logos can be downloaded here. A copy (digital or virtual) of the work needs to be made available to Cineworks for our catalog. All copyright remains with the artists unless otherwise stated.

Please note: that members are expected to complete a minimum of ten volunteer hours annually. Cineworks runs as a member-driven organization and your diverse skill sets are essential and greatly appreciated! Visit our Volunteer Page for exciting and ongoing opportunities.

Alex MacKenzie is a Vancouver-based media artist working primarily with 16mm analog film equipment and hand processed imagery. He creates works of expanded cinema, light projection installation, and projector performance. His work has screened at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, the EXiS Experimental Film Festival in Seoul, Lightcone in Paris, Kino Arsenal in Berlin and others. Alex was the founder and curator of the Edison Electric Gallery of Moving Images, the Blinding Light!! Cinema and the Vancouver Underground Film Festival. He was an artist in residence at Atelier MTK in Grenobles, France, the Struts Gallery/Faucet Media in New Brunswick and Cineworks’ Analog Film Annex in Vancouver. Alex co-edited Damp: Contemporary Vancouver Media Art (Anvil Press 2008), and interviewed David Rimmer for Loop, Print, Fade + Flicker: David Rimmer’s Moving Images (Anvil Press 2009). Recent commissions include Portal, (Situated Cinema WNDX Winnipeg 2012), Auroratone: Digitalis (FilmPop Montreal 2012), The Film That Buys The Cinema (Cube Bristol 2013) and Hyborian Witch (Wrong Wave/Kensington Gore 2013). He is a founding member of the Iris Film Collective in Vancouver and is currently creating a new series of works entitled Spectacle that is both gallery and performance-based. “Alex Mackenzie is the unequivocal master of contemporary Canadian expanded cinema: using rare and outdated technology with the deft touch of a visual alchemist, Mackenzie spins his stunning and mesmerizing anti-narratives using the detritus of cinematic history to create a completely unforgettable, and undeniably powerful, alternate vision.” Deborah. de Boer, Antimatter
