Sharing new work in collaboration with Blunderspublik at Winnipeg Cinematheque's 'Bands Vs. Filmmakers' - May 23 - 8pm!

May 11, 2015

 

 

“The Cinematheque should astonish all who can still be astonished in Winnipeg with its ceaselessly inventive film programming and dazzling array of visiting artists and speakers. Let us all revel in its feast of light.” – George Toles (Film Professor, screenwriter, Guy Maddin collaborator)

 

After last year’s record setting fundraiser in support of Cinematheque, the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque and WEST END CULTURAL CENTRE join forces again to present BANDS VS FILMMAKERS 5!

 

Tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door

 

 

Here is a nice article in the Winnipeg Free Press about the event.

 

Featured bands/musicians and filmmakers:

 

Attica Riots / Deco Dawson

Blunderspublik / Freya Olafson

Rob Crooks / Ryan Simmons

Pip Skid / Gwen Trutnau

Basic Nature / Forrest McGregor

 

BANDS VS FILMMAKERS 5 is a fantastic evening featuring NEW FILM PREMIERES by five successful independent Winnipeg filmmakers accompanied by the performances of five great Winnipeg bands and musicians.

 

On May 23, 2015 we will present five of Winnipeg’s finest independent filmmakers who’ll be paired individually with one of five bands/musicians to create a film inspired by one of the bands’ songs. Each filmmaker will create 20 minutes of new work (with no restrictions on their creativity) the films will then be premiered silently as each band plays to the imagery of the films created by the filmmaker.

 

Featuring diverse genres including rock, hip-hop, electronic and shoe-gaze, this fundraising evening in support of the Winnipeg Cinematheque is not one to be missed.

 

A silent auction of fabulous prizes will be included, featured in a draw at the end of the evening – everything from prize packages at some of Winnipeg’s finest arts groups to fabulous DVD cult classics and more!
