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!

 

Thanks as well to MB150 for sponsoring all of GFF’s MB150 programming this year, including the Manitoba Film Retrospective, Manitoba Home Movie Archive and the creation of 11 new Manitoba-made films! Thanks as well to our other Manitoba Project sponsors, including the Asper Foundation, Canada Council for the Arts, Thomas Sill Foundation, Winnipeg Foundation, Manitoba Arts CouncilManitoba Film & Music, Video Pool Media Arts Centre, Winnipeg Film Group, ACTRA Manitoba and IATSE 856.

Family man - escape artist - bank robber! Ken Leishman was the man who masterminded both the biggest gold heist and the biggest jailbreak in Canadian history.
