Spring is on its way to Canada. What better way to welcome the warm temperatures than to watch brand new Canadian short films, thanks to the Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival? This festival is organized by the Toronto International Film Festival and features some of the best original Canadian films.
At the Winnipeg Film Group, two nights in March are dedicated to featuring some of the most outstanding new Canadian short films from 2014. On March 18th, check out the top 10 student-made films; while on March 19th, enjoy the best 10 shorts from Canada’s current independent film makers. Both shows start at 7:00 p.m. and will be introduced by Dave Barber, Programming Coordinator at the WFG and juror for the Top Ten events. The schedules and film listings are found in the links below:
It’s still refreshing to go to an actual cinema to watch short films, despite their ever- increasing availability on the Internet. Festivals at cinemas, in particular, can be an excellent way for short film makers and the short film audience to get together and share their passion for this type of genre with each other. The audience gets to learn more about the film maker, while the film maker can get a sense of the impact his or her films are making in the public. Last but not least, attending a film festival is a great way to support your local independent cinema theatre!
To all who will be attending the March 18th and 19th screenings: have fun and enjoy!
