Moving Pictures presented an annual travelling program of Canadian films in the genres of drama, documentary, animation and experimental, in diverse lengths (features, mid-length and shorts), and in the formats of 35 mm, beta SP and DVD. The rationale of the festival was to disseminate work by Canadian artists and to develop an appreciation of Canadian cinema as an art form and cultural product. Organizers of the festival also hosted workshops, seminars and filmmaker appearances. The organization was based in Vancouver, B.C. The festival travelled to smaller communities across British Columbia.
