A selection of orphan films that have been recently digitized as a part of the Winnipeg Film Group Archive/ Counter-Archive Case Study, curated Skye Callow.

Please join us on the evening of Friday, March 29th, 2024, for a screening of orphan films from the Winnipeg Film Group vault! This selection of films was recently digitized as a part of the WFG Archive/ Counter-Archive case study which aims to showcase, preserve, and celebrate audio-visual archives created by underrepresented artists in the Winnipeg Film Group catalogue.

Chasing Moons is a curated selection of five short films from theWFG distribution collection which have recently been digitized during the WFG’s ongoing Archive/Counter-Archive Case Study (@counterarchive).

This evocative collection of shorts features animations, dramatic fictions, and one delightful documentary that follows a group of amateur astronomers as they attempt to catch sight of the 1979 solar eclipse just outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Chasing Moons offers a glimpse into previously inaccessible parts of the WFG’s archive and showcases five beautifully weaved visual stories of love, dreaming, and play.

This program will also be available to stream online for free on VUCAVU (@vucavu) from April 2-8, 2024. Stay tuned for more information!
