REFLECTING LIGHT: 40 YEARS OF CANADIAN CINEMA
From May 6-9, 2015, the Winnipeg Cinematheque will host a national forum that uses the Winnipeg Film Group’s 40th anniversary as a starting point to explore how the landscape of Canadian cinema has developed over the past decades and how it is currently evolving. This forum will also take a critical look at the role and relevance of the now 40-year-old national film production centre system in fostering filmmaking communities and voices across Canada.
This event will feature panel discussions with leading Canadian filmmakers, programmers and art professionals on topics that examine the evolution of the independent filmmaking practice in Canada, as well as new contexts for supporting creative innovation in the future.
