Spanning a decade in Saskatchewan and five years in Winnipeg, the 20 films in this showcase offer a wide range of filmmaking styles. Working within the confines of editing in camera and not altering the original footage, each film possesses its own charm and succinct message. A number of these films have screened internationally, representing the eclectic prairie perspectives seen through a small gauge camera. The results offer an increasingly rare opportunity to see the magic of cinema in a celluloid form.
