The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival’s Films on the Go program encourages establishments around the province to screen a series of short films it showed that year during its festival — they’ll even mail you the DVDs. All you need is a venue, projector, and audience. You can keep your profits.
You can screen them any time that works for you, between May and July of 2016. “Films On The Go offers organizations a unique opportunity to show exciting new films in their community and fundraise for their organization.”
This year’s Films On The Go program is made up of ten short films. They include local filmmaker Jenina MacGillivray’s The Tour, a comedic film about a broken-hearted tour guide who gives a very personalized tour of the city of St. John’s to an unsuspecting busload of tourists.
To single out another short, and illustrate the diversity of the sweet suite of short films, the package also includes Katatjanik utippalianinga (The Return of Throat Singing), made through a partnership between the Nunatsiavut Government and FRAMED Filmmaking Camp. it’s a short doc is about throat singing — a special talent and traditional game performed by women in Nunatsiavut.
Films On The Go launches with a screening on Saturday, April 30th at the Grenfell Theatre in Corner Brook at 7pm. A FRAMED West film, Good Grief, will be filmed in Corner Brook next week with mentor Allison White, who has been selected to attend the Cannes Film Festival for her current production project. Allison will also show at this screening as well.
