Abstract: Formed in the summer of 1983, the Reel Women's Cable Collective is dedicated to the vision of a women's cable network. The collective wants more women's issues in the media and a feminist analysis of the news. With the co-operation of Channel 3, Cable Regina, it aired six programs in the fall of 1983, two of which were nominated for national awards.
Funding from the Secretary of State Women's Program enabled training workshops with media professionals for researchers, script writers, carera and sound operators, switchers, directors, producers, and editor.
The collective also airs productions by other women's groups in Canada. Subjects on video have included women and work, the Indian act, pronography, homemakers and the women's movement, discrimination against differently-abled women, feminist health issues, feminism and redefinition of spirituaility, elderly women and women's music.
Anyone living in Canada can ask their local cable station to air programs produced by another cable station.
The collective has also produced a training manual on cable television production. For a copy write Secretary of State Women's program, 200-2101 Scarth St., Regina, Sask. S4P 2H9.
