Art on the Screens: Winnipeg Film Group

Partnering with the City of Mississauga Public Art Program, the Winnipeg Film Group will showcase four works:

Biidaaban (the dawn comes) (pictured) by Amanda Strong is about a young gender non-binary Anishinaabeg who collects sap ceremonially with 10,000-year-old shapeshifting Sasquatch in urban Ontario.

Seasick by Eva Cvicjanovic is a meditative exploration of one's love of the sea, to the soundtrack of traditional Croatian music.

HILA by Adam Bentley is a short film about Tiffany Ayalik, an Inuit woman in Canada's north, who has a private moment to dance in snowshoes.

nature mother by Delf Gravert tells the story of Renate Gravert-Martins's photography and life told through her work and 16 mm reinterpretations of her images.

Winnipeg Film Group is an education, production, exhibition and distribution centre committed to promoting the art of moving image. Founded in 1974, the Winnipeg Film Group began distributing locally made films in 1981 to help serve Manitoba filmmakers who were creating work but didn't have the knowledge or resources to seek out screenings or sales for their work. Currently, Winnipeg Film Group represents hundreds of filmmakers and video artists from across Canada and have an international reputation for providing quality and unique artwork.
