Wapikoni Mobile Film Screening

Thursday, October 5, 2017 - 19:00

Quebec-based Wapikoni's Indigenous youth film and music production collective is bringing Cinema on Wheels - a travelling audiovisual creation studio - to Vancouver for the first time! Join us for a special screening of documentary and performance based short films produced by indigenous youth and young adults developed from Wapikoni's multi media training workshops.

This screening program features over 15 diverse short films that engage with First Nations issues and activist strategies specific to the filmmakers communities, including environmental and land protection, independent media development, music and poetry as a site of agency, and community street protest. A Q and A with Wapikoni filmmakers and coordinators will follow this dynamic screening.
 
Wapikoni Mobile is a travelling audiovisual and musical creation studio dedicated to Indigenous youth. Since 2004, Wapikoni has visited over 32 communities in Canada and accompanied over 4,300 participants who worked to produce close to 1,000 short films. These films have received 148 awards and honours at national and international festivals. Wapikoni mobile is under the patronage of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO.
 
Wapikoni believes that video and music creations can become powerful tools for social transformation and for people to tell their own stories. This is a rare opportunity to see Wapikoni's diverse young filmmakers in a single cinema program. Not to be missed!
