Afro Prairie Film Festival: Emerging Black Canadian Filmmakers Shorts

Black Space Winnipeg was pleased to see such incredible talent in the films submitted this year for the Afro Prairie Film Festival. Our programming committee has selected five films that explore Black narratives:

Black WeddingDirected by Patrick Mugosa

BONUMDirected by Sabrina Naz

I Don’t See ColourDirected by Kelechi Asagwara

MarinerDirected by Thyrone Tommy

Saving GraceDirected by Bisong Taiwo

Yaya/ayatDirected by Shimby Zegeye-Gebrehiwot

We will open with a film from Winston W Moxam. Afro Canadian Filmmaker, Winston Washington Moxam attended the film production program at Confederation College in Thunder Bay before moving to Toronto, where he completed his first documentary, From the Other Side. In 1992, Winston returned to Winnipeg, where he completed a body of short films prior to Barbara James, his first feature film. His 2009 feature film, Billy, based on the life story of Billy Beale, earned him and co-writer and co-producer Ernesto Griffith a 2010 Human Rights Commitment Award of Manitoba. Winston passed away in Winnipeg in April 2011 and it is due to his influence and contribution to filmmaking in the Prairies and throughout Canada that we were honoured to give this award for the best Canadian short film in his name.

Presented in Partnership with the Afro Prairie Film Festival & Black Space Winnipeg.
