Time and Place: Shorts from the Winnipeg Film Group

FREE ADMISSION! This curated program of shorts from the WFG explores themes of movement and change, the passage of time, family memory, and cultural history. Made up of eight innovative works in a variety of genres, from comedy to experimental narrative to personal documentary, it includes films by pioneering WFG luminaries Guy Maddin and John Paizs, the former in a remarkable collaboration with Isabella Rossellini, the latter represented by his Canada on Screen-selected short Springtime in Greenland.

The program screens with French subtitles and forms part of the WFG’s “Found in Translation / Traduction Fidèle” tour, an initiative, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, to bring the WFG’s unique works to French-language audiences.
