Add to Cart

“This collective curatorial … hopefully has reflected at least the essential spirit of the filmmaking community that has emerged in Winnipeg in nearly four decades – a compendium of individual works that have contributed to a collective and evolving whole.” (Cecilia Araneda, guest curator)

DVD curated by Cecilia Araneda, Danishka Esterhazy & Solomon Nagler

Released in July 2012, THE NEW WAVE: The First Decade in a New Century, is the last of a six-DVD set celebrating films from the Winnipeg Film Group's Distribution Catalogue. Featuring 13 short films from the first decade of the 21st century, in some cases the filmmaker’s first or very early work, this DVD showcases the talented array of filmmaking styles and voices that have emerged from Manitoba in recent years.
