Manitoba Film & Music has released their latest newsletter. Included are stories about Guy Maddin's European Adventures, Manitoba on the big screen, Manitoba at the Junos and more!
Manitoba at the Junos
Manitoba Film & Music is a proud supporter of Manitoba’s Juno nominees.
Local act The Wailin’ Jennys is up for Root & Traditional Album of the Year, making this their third Juno nomination. Manitoba’s Doc Walker is in the running for Country Album of the Year, while KEN Mode is up for Hard/Metal Album of the Year. Winnipeg group Bruthers of Different Muthers (or BODM), who picked up the award for Best Rock CD at this year’s Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards, has received a nod for Aboriginal Album of the Year.
The nominees were announced on February 7, 2012 and the hardware will be handed out in Ottawa on April 1, 2012. Manitoba Film & Music has recently supported The Wailin’ Jennys, Doc Walker and KEN Mode.
Guy Maddin’s European Adventures
Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin is finding great success across the pond with a high-profile screening of his feature film KEYHOLE at the Berlinale International Film Festival and an exhibit and filming at Centre Pompidou in Paris.
Maddin’s latest feature KEYHOLE screened at Berlinale February 13 and February 15, 2012. The film, a surreal and supernatural ghost story, stars Isabella Rossellini, Kevin McDonald and Udo Kier. KEYHOLE premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and won Best Canadian Feature at the Whistler Film Festival in December.
