PROGRAM

Goodwin’s Way | 56 min | 2016
Filmmaker: Neil Vokey (DOC BC)
When highway signs commemorating folk hero Ginger Goodwin disappear, the documentary Goodwin’s Way finds the nearby Cumberland, B.C. at a crossroads with its history. Goodwin, a rebellious labour activist, was slain by police under mysterious circumstances almost a century ago, yet his name still elicits wounds that date back to the town’s coal mining past. Goodwin’s Way straddles the dividing line between historical and current-event documentary genres to tell the story of a community fighting for autonomy over its past, and its future.

Mulitverse Dating for Beginners | 13 min 02 sec | 2017
Filmmaker: Kelly Tatham (WIFTV)
Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl meets boy... again? In the Multiverse do-overs are a given, possibilities are infinite, and love is always a choice.

Lilith | 11 min 31 sec | 2016
Filmmaker: Rogan Christopher (Cineworks)
After witnessing a sexual assault, a succubus hunts down the rapist and exacts vengeance.

Your Farmer Keith, Episode 2 | 13 min | 2017
Filmmaker: Lois Neu (WIFTV)
Your Farmer, Keith is a web series, chronicling the trials, tribulations and triumphs of an Independent Organic Farmer in Saskatchewan.
Episode One touched on his relationships with family, temporary foreign workers and the members of his CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) Program. Episode Two takes a closer look at the CSA business and concludes with Keith’s decision to continue or discontinue the operation.
