WNDX Fes­ti­val of Mov­ing Image launch­es Wednes­day night; run­ning through Sun­day, Octo­ber 9th at Art­space and the Man­i­to­ba Muse­um Audi­to­ri­um. In-per­son admis­sion is avail­able at a pay-what-you-can rate, and all of our screen­ings (with the excep­tion of One Take Super 8) are avail­able to be streamed world­wide for free via our web­site (wndx​.org).

This year we will be start­ing off as usu­al with the much-beloved One Take Super 8 Screen­ing, show­cas­ing work from film­mak­ers across the spec­trum of expe­ri­ence who have sub­mit­ted a range of one-take shorts shot on ana­logue film. This screen­ing is a pre­mière event for the audi­ence and film­mak­ers alike and is always a mag­i­cal sight to encounter!

From there, the fol­low­ing days will include Open Call shorts gath­ered from film­mak­ers across the globe, and our Fea­ture of Shar­lene Bamboat’s From Every Tongue it Drips, paired with Moham­madreza Farzad’s Subto­tals, a duo explor­ing themes of per­son­al expe­ri­ence, iden­ti­ty and otherness.

Fol­low­ing those, we will show the Pami­la Math­aru ret­ro­spec­tive: works which probe the con­cepts of youth cul­ture, com­mu­ni­ty, and inter-gen­er­a­tional con­nec­tiv­i­ty. This pro­gram­ming will be fol­lowed by a Q&A.

The Queer City Cin­e­ma shorts pro­gram, com­piled of sev­en works from queer film­mak­ers explores the trans­ac­tions between pri­vate and pub­lic life, and the pos­si­bil­i­ties for cre­at­ing new space for empow­er­ment and res­o­lu­tion; also fol­lowed by a Q&A.

The last two screen­ings of the fes­ti­val are Orfeus21: a queer, retro-futur­ist retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus; steeped in ide­o­log­i­cal strug­gle and cul­ture wars, and The Sound We See: a project ini­ti­at­ed and com­plet­ed dur­ing the week of the fes­ti­val; designed to cap­ture a con­tem­po­rary por­trait of the city of Win­nipeg, with the help of our city’s citizens.

We’ll wind down the week with a moon­struck all-ages dance par­ty both Sat­ur­day and Sun­day nights at Artspace’s The Out­put. For there is no bet­ter way to say good­bye to a fan­tas­tic time and delight­ful friends than there is with a lit­tle break to boo­gie down!

This year’s fes­ti­val will be a dry event, with non-alco­holic beers and bev­er­ages avail­able for the dura­tion of the fes­ti­val (exclud­ing open­ing night) at a pay-what-you-can cost.

Please join us at the 17th edi­tion of the WNDX Fes­ti­val of Mov­ing Image this week! We are excit­ed to share this year’s pro­gram­ming with every­one, and hope to see you, either in per­son or online.
