Spotlight on homegrown cinema
| 80 minutes | 2017
Since 1974, the eccentric filmmakers of the Winnipeg Film Group have been calling the shots in the middle of the Prairies. Their strange art has critics shaking their heads. Is there something in the water? Why Winnipeg? From old-school directors John Paizs (Crime Wave) and Guy Maddin (Tales from the Gimli Hospital) to up-and-comers like Mike Maryniuk (The Goose, also playing at this year’s festival), the filmmakers step out from behind the camera in this fascinating, highly informative documentary featuring film clips, personal accounts and priceless anecdotes.
