Tales from the Winnipeg Film Group

Director: Kevin Nikkel , Dave Barber

Year: 2017

Plot: Tales from The Winnipeg Film Group is the explosive story of how a stubborn band of independent filmmakers started a film co-operative that became the most highly respected film centre in Canada. Packed with rare archival footage, dynamic film excerpts, and hilarious interviews this documentary traces the history of the legendary Winnipeg Film Group. Often mired in controversy the Winnipeg Film Group is acclaimed at film festivals around the world for subversive, original filmmaking. We hear great behind the scenes stories that detail the rise of acclaimed filmmakers like John Paizs (Crime Wave), Guy Maddin (Tales From The Gimli Hospital, My Winnipeg) Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan (We're Talking Vulva, Good Citizen, Betty Baker) and Caroline Monnett (Ikwe) Pioneering members such as Elise Swerhone, Allan Kroeker and Shereen Jerrett outline the beginnings in Winnipeg from its first home in the historic Bate Building in the 1970s to its later move to 88 Adelaide Street and the Artspace Building. Toronto International Film Festival CEO Piers Handling, writer and programmer Geoff Pevere and filmmaker Mike Hoolboom outline the tremendous importance and impact of Winnipeg on the national filmmaking scene.
