Description

Join us for a special WORKSHOP with award winning director Nettie Wild.

The screening and workshop are free, but you'll need a ticket to hold your space.

One of Canada’s leading documentary filmmakers, Nettie will explore the pursuit of cinematic poetry in real life -- and how to break through the rhetoric of our controversial times. She will reveal how she seeks to embrace the abstract by framing the familiar in an unfamiliar way. Be sure to attend this exploration of how to surprise yourself as an artist – and your audience.

The Workshop
Sunday, February 24
10am - 5pm
@ The Commons, 1206 20 Ave SE, Calgary, AB.

Join this exploration of the exhilarating and terrifying world of taking creative risks – of the necessity of not knowing where that journey will take you. Bring your own ideas – and your fears – and share them with Nettie and all of us. Twist your head. Enjoy the ride.
During the workshop, Nettie will also be screening UINNTERRUPTED, a cinematic spectacle which projected images of the Pacific salmon migration onto Vancouver’s Cambie street bridge. The 25 minute show ran nightly for three months and played to over 30,000 people. Wallfower* art magazine listed it as one of the world’s top outdoor art exhibitions of 2017.

If you are joining Nettie for the workshop, you are encouraged to see
