The Alberta Media Arts Alliance is thrilled to present Prairie Tales Redux, an exciting expansion of our 17-year Prairie Tales program, including for the first time, films from Saskatchewan, Manitoba, The Yukon and Northwest Territories in addition to Alberta. Working closely with film cooperatives and distributors in the western provinces and territories, we have selected the best new films from their membership. Truly encompassing the diverse talent of prairie filmmakers, this program calls forth the vast splendour (and bleak remoteness) of the region through innovative animation, experimental film, documentary and narrative.
Programmed by Nicola Waugh with assistance from: Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA), Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers (CSIF), Paved Arts, Saskatchewan Filmpool, Western Arctic Moving Pictures (WAMP), Yukon Film Society, Winnipeg Film Group and Videopool.
