National Canadian Film Day: WFG: Found In Translation Tour: Animating the Good and the Bad

Wed, April 17 / 7 pm
Free Admission
Winnipeg Film Group: Found In Translation Tour:
Animating the Good and the Bad

Introduced by Steph Berrington

In conjunction with National Canadian Film Day we present Winnipeg Film Group: Found In Translation Tour: Animating the Good and the Bad. The films in this animation program are sometimes funny, sometimes irreverent, and sometimes dystopic in their rejection of normative ideologies. Featuring The Talk: True Stories about the Birds and Bees by Alain Delannoy, Boy Toys by Trevor Kristjanson, Bush Wact by Mike Maryniuk, Loving The Bomb by Alison Davis, The Nine to Five Crack by John Paizs, A Bit Transcendental by Patrick Lowe, I Want it by Murray Toews, Empty by Jackie Traverse, and In Still Time by Leslie Supnet.

The Winnipeg Film Group’s Distribution Department has hundreds of amazing (funny, poignant, thoughtful, quirky) independent short films in our collection. Some of these uniquely Canadian stories were largely inaccessible to French audiences here in Canada and around the world. With a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts we were able to translate and subtitle over 30 titles. This is the second part of a four-program series of the Winnipeg Film Group Distribution project Found in Translation / Traduction Fidèle, which will be presented for free at the Cinematheque over the next four months.

FREE ADMISSION!

ABOUT US

our location

We’re located in the heart of Winnipeg's historic Exchange District in the Artspace building. We are across the street from Old Market Square at the corner of Arthur Street and Bannatyne - one block west of Main.

The Winnipeg Film Group is located on Treaty 1 Territory and on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene Peoples and in the homeland of the Métis Nation. We offer our respect and gratitude to the traditional caretakers of this land.
