Historic Winnipeg Films !

Tonight I went to the Premier of Souvenirs by Paula Kelly. It's a series of three short films, each 6 to 10 minutes in length.

Kelly has been the artist in residence at the City of Winnipeg Archives for the past 6 months and in that time compiled some very rare photographs and video of historic Winnipeg to create 3 short stories. You can read about them here.

On Friday the theatrical release will be held at 7 pm at Cinematheque and, in true Winnipeg style, admission is free !!

Souvenirs is followed by Don McKellar’s film Last Night.
