Kootenay Screen Based Industry Workers

Started by The Civic Theatre in Nelson, this group aims to connect people working in all aspects of film, video, tv, and online production. The goal is to support further development of the professional film sector in the Kootenays.

Our Community

The Civic Theatre is more than just a movie theatre – we are a community activator with a goal to ensure access to film and offer educational opportunities to audiences of all ages.

Our History

While The Civic Theatre has been in existence since the 1930s, it was in 2012 that NCTS was formed to reopen this venue after its closure in 2011. Since then, our story has been one of  hard work and great community successes.
