The Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque and the West End Cultural Centre join forces once again to present BANDS VS FILMMAKERS 5, the must see event of the year where all funds raised go to the support of Cinematheque. The event will take place on Saturday, May 23rd, 2015.
We are seeking five Winnipeg filmmakers to create new film, video and expanded cinema work to be presented live to accompany electrifying performances by five of Winnipeg’s hottest independent bands. Each artist will work individually with a particular band to create an incredible visual and musical experience. Filmmakers will project their work from the back of the hall which will be simultaneously screened behind each band’s performance.
Past music performers have included Birdapres & Grey Jay, Ridley Bent, Hana Lu Lu, Les Jupes, Mise en Scene, Mariachi Ghost, Mahogany Frog, Flying Fox & The Hunter Gatherers, JD Edwards Band, Slattern, SitDownTracy, This Hisses, Cannon Bros., The Magnificent 7s, Nova, John K Samson, The Jaxon 3, The Shallow End and Nathan.

Wiebe, Stéphane Oystryk, Danishka Esterhazy, Mike Maryniuk, Heidi Phillips, Aaron Zeghers and Clint Enns.
