Bands vs. Filmmakers II

THU, MAY 31 / 8 pm
At the West End Cultural Centre

“The Cinematheque should astonish all who can still be astonished in Winnipeg with its ceaselessly inventive film programming and dazzling array of visiting artists and speakers. To regularly attend the Cinematheque screenings is to have one’s faith in a transformative, life-enriching art form restored. The landscape of the medium is so much greater, so much more challenging and diverse than the parched, demoralized landscape of by-the-numbers moviemaking would suggest. For me, the Winnipeg Cinematheque is the jewel in the crown of the city’s vibrant arts scene. Let us all revel in its feast of light.”
George Toles (Film Professor, screenwriter, author)
 
After last year’s amazing concert and visual event in support of Cinematheque, the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque and WEST END CULTURAL CENTRE join forces again to present BANDS VS FILMMAKERS II.
 
With Winnipeg icon Sylvia Kuzyk as host, five of Winnipeg’s finest independent filmmakers present their film and video work 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.
 
The film and music mind melding experience begins at 8 PM on Thursday, May 31st, 2012. Bands vs. Filmmakers II. Featured bands include some of Winnipeg’s finest including Cannon Bros., Nova, Magnificent 7s, This Hisses, and SitDownTracy.
 
Each group is working with a different independent filmmaker including Danishka Esterhazy (acclaimed, award winning director of Black Field ), Curtis Wiebe(sculptor, puppeteer and filmmaking wizard)Stéphane Oystryk (Franco Manitoban rebel and independent artist), Rhayne Vermette (emerging independent filmmaker and participant in this year’s Mosaic Women’s Project which premieres in June) and Scott Fitzpatrick (an outstanding emerging visual artist who is breaking new ground in experimental film).
 
A silent auction of fabulous prizes includes a signed DVD copy of the cult classic A Clockwork Orange by British actor Malcolm McDowell, passes from the Winnipeg Folk Festival and Winnipeg Jazz Festival, signed copies of the Comedy Fest poster and Kids in the Hall film Brain Candy by comedian Kevin McDonald and lots more.
