The best in Aboriginal cinema is about to celebrated, as the 10th annual Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival gets underway for another year on Wednesday.
From November 16-20, the University of Winnipeg’s Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall will host screenings of more than two dozen films. Festival passes of $25 will get you into every film during the four-day event.
A special documentary titled “Indigenous in the City” will show at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, hosted by the CBC’s Wab Kinew. “The film beats down the stereotypical images of addictions, crime, and poverty as it examines how colonization affects us all, and how a dysfunctional relationship between non-aboriginal and aboriginal peoples can be fixed,” according to the WAFF website. Indigenous in the City will be a free screening.
