AFCOOP moves to north end Halifax 

Cooperative to exit CBC Radio Building at month's end

After 12 years upstairs in the CBC Radio Building on Sackville, the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative has found a new home. As of the beginning of June, you'll be able to find them at the Regal Building, 5663 Cornwallis Street, that once housed the Yoga Loft.

According to AFCOOP's "BIG Email," the non-profit will miss the hub of activity at the former location. To wit:

"The CBC has been a generous and supportive host and AFCOOP has benefited immensely from the space, resources and general friendliness of the CBC staff and the fellow tenants through the years including the Centre for Art Tapes, Atlantic Film Festival, St Cecilia Concert Series, FlashFire production company and the Linda Joy Media Arts Society. The building has been AFCOOP’s base camp, meeting place, the site of countless workshops, screenings, and even the occasional party. The movies that have been made there, the people who went to their first filmmaking workshop there, and the friendships and connections that have been forged there are too numerous to begin to mention."

The good news is AFCOOP's new exposed-brick digs are also home to other creative organizations, including the Co & Co Design collective.
