WAPIKONI MOBILE’S ANNUAL PREMIERE

For the 2013 Premiere, Wapikoni mobile is proud to present the latest films created by young First Nations filmmakers. 

This selection of short films brings together works of outstanding quality and highlights a rich contemporary culture too often ignored. During the evening, Wapikoni will present a dozen short films including the latest works of Réal Junior Leblanc and Délia Gunn, both recipients of the Prix coup de cœur and special mention by Télé Québec 2013. Following his time spent in the prestigious École des Gobelins in Paris, the talented director mi’gmaq, Raymond Caplin, will present his second animated film, Traditional Healing. Moreover, the highlight of this screening will be a short film chronicling Wapikoni’s initial participation at the UN!

 In the spirit of preparing for Wapikoni mobile’s 10th anniversary in 2014, the team will launch its new website. The evening will be animated by Nicolas Bergeron and Melissa Mollen Dupuis, co-founder of the Idle No More movement, who will invite you to comment live on your personal favorites.
