Administrative history

Constituted in Toronto in 1979, the Association of Canadian Film Craftspeople was later recognized as a trade union in Ontario and operated as an unincorporated association representing the workplace interests of film technicians in sectors including lighting, hair and makeup, camera work, set decorating and transportation. In addition to negotiating improved pay and working conditions and promoting skills development workshops, the association provided its membership with health insurance and other benefits. The ACFC participated in Canadian industry committees, lobby groups and events and supported many organizations dedicated to the development of Canadian film production personnel. By 1989 the ACFC had opened locals in Winnipeg and Vancouver and including Toronto reached a membership peak of 800. By the early 1990's, a shifting marketplace and an intense rivalry with other unions resulted in a declining membership. The ACFC was dissolved in April of 1998 and many of its locals merged with the rival International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. One division of the former association, ACFC West, continues to operate in British Columbia.

Scope and content

The fonds primarily documents the Association of Canadian Film Craftspeople's operational and administrative activities. Records consist of dissolution files; financial records and contracts; meeting minutes; correspondence and other administrative records including reports; and publicity, special event and marketing records.
