---

1) MOCASSIN STORIES
Charlene Moore | Manitoba | 2016 | 21 M
Moccasins are more than footwear. They have the power to show us who we are. This Manitoba documentary follows the stories and lives of Indigenous Women and demonstrates the important role moccasins have played in their lives.

2) WAABISHKI-MA’IINGAN (A WHITE WOLF)
Ryan Wilson | Manitoba | 2017 | 6 M
Angus McDonad shows us how culture and tradition saved his life while being moved from home to home in the child welfare system.

3) RED RIVER ROOTS
Rachel Beaulieu | Manitoba | 2017 | 6 M
Jesse’s connection to his Red River roots goes back over a century. He hears of how his family shaped his history with what he now has today and goes on a spiritual journey to bring his great great great uncle a piece of home.

4) FULL OF FIRE
Rhayne Vermette | Manitoba | 2013 | 2 M
There are few alternatives for exiles. The homecoming may be postponed to an indeterminate future; one could settle for a replacement; and lastly, there is always madness.

5) FORGOTTEN
Jesse Spence | Manitoba | 2017 | 6 M
Levi lives a simple life until escalating visions too strong to ignore lead him to reconnect to his indigenous heritage.

6) BANK STATEMENT
Tyshana Hobson | Manitoba | 2017 | 6 M
A young Indigenous woman gets questioned by a teller when she makes her bi-weekly cash deposits at her local bank.

7) THE SPIDER
Roger Boyer
Chuck has a crush on the ower shop girl next door. Using a superhero card drawn by his co-worker Kelly, Chuck tries to strike up a conversation with her.

8) THE ESCAPIST
Amanda Kindzierski | Manitoba | 2017 | 10 M
A man faces his fears and his friends in his search for the life he wants and the relationships that matter.

9) RUN AS ONE – THE JOURNEY OF THE FRONT RUNNERS
Erica Daniels | Manitoba | 2018 | 19 M
Ten young Indigenous athletes from First Nations across Manitoba were selected to run the Pan Am torch from Minneapolis to Winnipeg in 1967. But just before the athletes arrived at the opening ceremonies, the torch was taken from them and handed to a non-Indigenous athlete, who carried the torch into the stadium. Fifty years later the runners reunite to share their memories.
