The Revelstoke Multicultural Society will be hosting The World Anew First Nations Films Screening next week.

The World Anew is a project presented by Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society (Vancouver) that explores contemporary First Nations film through three main components: a touring film screening, mentored youth film production workshops and an interactive website.

Audiences are invited to experience The World Anew through short films by six Aboriginal filmmakers at the Revelstoke Community Centre on Monday, Sept. 19 from 7–9 p.m. Admission is free or by donation.

These films celebrate a multitude of First Nations identities in Canada, as well as past and current indigenous forms of exchange through diverse forms and genres, from documentary, to narrative, to experimental.

Filmmakers and selected films include:

• Banchi Hanuse, (Nuxalk), Cry Rock

• Zoe Leigh Hopkins, (Heiltsuk/Mohawk), Ktunaxa: Our First Voices

• Kate Kroll and Marilyn Thomas, (Saulteaux), Shi-Shi-Etko,

• Terrance Houle, (Blood Tribe), Friend or Foe

• Kelvin Redvers (Métis – Dené), Firebear Called them Faith Healers

• Bear Witness, (Cayuga Six Nations), Apanatschie and her Redheaded Wrestler

The World Anew will tour to nine locations in B.C.’s interior Kootenay and Ktunaxa regions.  The program is accompanied by curators Jennifer Cane and Marilyn Thomas (Saulteaux), who will lead a post-screening question and answer period.

 

The Revelstoke Multicultural Society is also looking for volunteers to help with the event. Contact Patti at patti.shonek@gmail.com.
