For Roy DIR. VIVIAN CHEUNG, 2022, BRITISH COLUMBIA | 12 MIN

Hotel Room DIR. SANDI BARRETT, 2023, BRITISH COLUMBIA | 12 MIN

A tale of two sisters who have recently immigrated to Canada, Hotel Room offers a loving, nuanced perspective on the theme of belonging. While one sister prematurely thrust into adulthood and fraught with worry, the other is hopeful and excited about the new possibilities.

Pool Party DIR. ELLIE STEWART, 2022, ALBERTA | 8 MIN

A group of roughly 15-year-olds have an unchaperoned dreamy birthday/pool party. The party, however, becomes fraught with tension and the tone rapidly changes into something more sinister.

Hangover DIR. FARRAH MURDOCK, 2023, MANITOBA | 3 MIN

Created during a time of self-doubt and feeling anxious about the future. Hangover is compiled of independent footage and audio recorded from July to December 2022.

nihtâwikihew / ᓂᐦᑖᐃᐧᑭᐦᐁᐤ / she gives birth DIR. SADETLO SCOTT, HEATHER HEINRICHS, 2023, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES | 20 MIN

Sâkowêw is a young woman in a remote community who just wants to welcome her new baby safely into the world. She trusts Auntie Mary to honour her family’s traditions. When something goes wrong, she’s snatched from warmth and safety, and spirited away to a disorienting place she never wanted to go. Told from her perspective, Sâkowêw’s story of giving birth lays bare the anti-Indigenous racism entrenched in health systems across Canada. Through intimate conversations with family and harrowing experiences at the local health centre, the film plunges audiences headlong into the deep impacts of colonialism, poor communication, and personal biases that Indigenous communities face.

Content advisory: this film may be triggering for some audience members. It deals with themes of racism, impacts of colonialism and trauma
