Dates of existence


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.
