As part of GFF’s efforts to celebrate Manitoba 150th anniversary, the Festival is excited to announce the lineup of a special MB150 Manitoba Film Retrospective. While there are so many great films made across Manitoba’s history, GFF decided to focus on films and stories made-in-Manitoba that have flown under the radar, despite being incredible filmmaking accomplishments.  The selected films portray a diverse collection of stories and filmmaking voices, across decades!

 

Thanks to Donald K. Johnson for supporting the Manitoba Film Retrospective in 2021!

A witty teen tests men, morals and manners as her family tries to marry her off in 1958 Canada.


“It’s a winningly offbeat little charmer from Canada in which Leslie Hope keeps slipping into her own fantasy world, as her Jewish parents browbeat her for not settling down with a nice young man. The familiar Jewish neuroses get another airing, but are enlivened by some nicely surreal touches from director Gail Singer and the Walter Mittyesque daydreaming of Hope. The performances from the largely unknown cast are also spot on”
