Some great responses from our community screenings of the Far Fur Country footage the last month.
In Alberta we returned to the Ft. McMurray Heritage Park for a screening, and in Ft Chipewyan to the Ft Chipewyan Municipal Building with help from the Ft Chipewyan Bicentennial Museum. We made some great connections with elders, and teachers at both of these events.
From Alberta, there was a quick trip to Abottsford BC to present at the University of the Fraser Valley, home to collaborator Peter Geller. Nice to visit Stephanie Gould’s documentary film class too.
On our Ontario tour, we visited University of Western Ontario in London, thanks to the invitation of Juan Bello in the Film Studies department and then up to the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre in Wiarton, Ontario, thanks to the invitation of Deborah Diebel.
Our first screening in the UK was held at the Glasgow Film Festival Feb 22. The festival arranged for some traditional Scottish fiddle music to accompany the 30 minutes of film, followed by a presentation by project c0-producer Chris Nikkel.
It has been a busy schedule touring the film program. Looking forward to the coming months of editing back in Winnipeg.
