Art City presents: Handcrafted Film with Rhayne Vermette
2018, Winnipeg, 20 min
Who needs a camera to make a movie? In this super awesome 16mm film, Art City kids explore camera-less ways to make a film with guest artist Rhayne Vermette. Witness direct animation onto film through various techniques: scratch animation, tape lifting, ink on film, laser printing … and many more! See it all in this cinematic explosion of color, sounds, materials and most importantly, fun!!


What started as a dream in 2005 has blossomed into a rite of passage for parents and their kids. They can shake the snow off their boots and spend an afternoon at the movies every Sunday all through January and February thanks to the generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union. Due to the popularity of this series it is our desire that parents and their kids be seated before all others. Thanks for your understanding.

We acknowledge the continued and generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union. This program presented in partnership with WNDX Festival of Moving Image.
