The Big Finish

Grass

Scott Amos, British Columbia, Canada 1m 30s
A Childhood memory recreated with hand processed super 8 film. (Filmmaker in Attendance)

Der Aufreiber (The Pick-Up Artist)
pickup

Steffen Weinert, Germany, 14m 39s
Actually Olli only wanted to have noncommittal, anonymous sex. But when he went out the door the daughter of his “Pick-Up” crosses his way. 6 year old Yvonne is not happy with the unlucky lovelife of her mother and decided to find a real boyfriend for her — and for herself a new dad.

The Inquisitive Snail
snail

Flemish Beauty, Ontario, Canada 1m
An inquisitive snail digs up dirt on the inhabitants of a small town only to realize that a shell full of secrets can be a very heavy load indeed.

Richard Lawrence, Yukon, 15m
Life, love, madness, death. Nothing is black and white.
An elderly man watches home movies as a form of therapy to deal with a recurring nightmare about his ailing wife. When image, dream and reality merge, the couple return to and confront the pivotal moment of their lives.

Saskatchewan part III
sask

Brian Stockton, Saskatchewan, Canada, 12m
The conclusion of The Saskatchewan Trilogy. Part 3 takes a humourous, animated look at the filmmaker’s family tree, and how it is that his grandparents ended up in Saskatchewan in the early 20th century. Saskatchewan Part 3 is a mélange of personal history, family mementos, and Saskatchewan lore, mixed together with a bone-dry sense of humour. Filmed in glorious 35mm cinemascope, Saskatchewan Part 3 seeks to define what it means to be come home.

Farmer's Requiem
farmers

Ramses Madina, Ontario, Canada 9m
In this meditative documentary about the gradual disappearance of farming culture, director Ramses Madina employs striking time-lapse photography and the thoughtful narration of elderly farmer Victor McGregor. Images of dilapidated farms and decaying barns, accompanied by McGregor’s fading voice, haunt the screen. (Canada’s Top 10)

Faire Chaluim Mhic Leoid (The Wake of Calum MacLeod)
wake

Marc Almon, Cape Breton, Canada, 8m 3s
North America's first Gaelic-language short film is a whirlwind of a tale! Stories can't bring back the ones you love. Or can they?

Tales from The Arctic Circle
tales

Roz Mortimer, United Kingdom, 12m
A magical look at a changing culture as locals compete in games and tests of skill: igloo building, ice sculpture, snowmobile racing and a round of golf on a fairway carved from the sea ice. It’s all so enchanting, but behind these images are stories of homelessness, melting ice, colonialism and isolation.

I Met The Walrus
walrus

Josh Raskin, Ontario, Canada, 6m
In 1969, fourteen-year old Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s Toronto hotel room and convinced him to do an interview. That interview has now become the soundtrack to the visually dazzling short I Met The Walrus, an entirely animated rendering of Lennon’s musings on peace, war and society. (OIAF)

Pourqoui on le fait
war

Thiery Boufford, Quebec, Canada, 7m
In film, like in war…

Dawson Town Melted Down
dawson

Lulu Keating, Yukon, 7m
Why the hell did you move to Dawson City?
The answer is a playful portrait of Dawson City, the lies and the truths of this frontier town. Shot mostly on 16mm film with a Bolex wind-up camera, the film was hand developed in KIAC’s darkroom.
