Our History and Vision

The Charlottetown Film Society is a non-profit Canadian Charity established in 2012 to support the film community in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Since 2015 we have been the organizers of The Charlottetown Film Festival, and since 2019 we are the proud owners of City Cinema in Downtown Charlottetown.

The Charlottetown Film Society endeavours to be an exceptional, sustainable independent cinema which inspires the study, appreciation and celebration of film while supporting the growth of the PEI film community through an enriched program of significant and diverse films.
