Finally after months of film making, shortlisting and voting we are excited to be able to announce the winners of the Your Winnipeg filmmaking competition. The winning film was selected by a panel of industry experts including Guy Maddin himself, who had the following to say about the entries…
“So many intriguing films showed up for our consideration that I am now thoroughly convinced there is hope for the future of film, and that it lies in the hands of those young revolutionary artists working out of their own homes, their own hometowns, and out on their streets, all using street-level technology accessible to the masses!”
Aside from the winners we would like to thank all of the filmmakers who took part as we were overwhelmed by the creativity, time and effort that went into the submissions and to everyone who helped with running this competition.
The winning film will feature on the DVD release of My Winnipeg (released on Monday 27th October). All winning films will also be screening on Channel 4’s 3 Minute Wonder segment early next year. If you want to catch the 12 shortlisted films then you should check out the reviews currently being posted over on the Fourdocs website.
