Name of creator
On 31 October 1960, the University of Saskatchewan Graduate Student Society wrote the Canadian Film Institute, seeking advice on establishing a film society. Their initiative was successful, and in February 1963, the Graduate Student Society changed its name to the "University of Saskatchewan Film Society." Membership was open; several members of faculty eventually served on the executive. During the 1960s and 1970s film series shown by the Society were well-attended, but by the mid-1980s membership had declined to the point that the Society no longer appeared feasible.
Material in this fonds was collected by Film Society member George Kovalenko; it includes files created or maintained by various members of the Executive, including Kovalenko. AE Krause, as Treasurer, maintained the early “accounts” files.
Scope and content
This fonds contains minutes, financial reports, lists of the Society's membership and its constitution; together with advertising, clippings, posters and brochures concerning the films shown; as well as questionnaires documenting members' reactions to the films.
