11th Annual Hamilton Film Festival 2016

 

11th Annual Hamilton Film Festival 2016 To Showcase Juried Films From over 20 Countries, including 47 Works Shot in Hamilton

The 11th Annual Hamilton Film Festival 2016 (HFF), a festival for feature-length movies, documentaries, and short films plus industry and public events … the brand-new Canadian Film Market, the first-ever Special Effects 72-Hour Film Challenge (HFX) plus the Hamilton Film Expo 2: Expo Harder … runs from Saturday, November 5 – Sunday, November 13.

HFF is held annually beginning the first Saturday in November, showcasing from a juried selection of submissions from all over the world.  "We've done extremely well in 2016 with 700 submissions from a total of 53 countries.  The Hamilton Film Festival will screen a total of 150 official movies, docs, and shorts over the nine days of the festival.  Forty-seven of those works have been shot in Hamilton.

"This year, of these selections, forty-five have been directed by women, a new record for HFF and one of which we're very proud.

"I feel this year is one of the best examples ever of story-telling we've had the pleasure of presenting to our audiences.  The submissions range in tone from dark to delirious, from romantic to rugged," says HFF director and CEO, Nathan Fleet.

Fleet continues, "The diversity is wonderful and we know our audiences will really enjoy the entire spectrum.  Of the 53 countries submitting, the top four countries are Canada (263 submissions), U.S.A. (147), U.K. (52), and Germany (25).

"For your interest, the longest film we have is a 282 minute drama…that's almost 5 hours! It's called The Family and it is from China (with English subtitles), directed by Shumin Liu.  The shortest is only 2:08 minutes long and is called A Bumpy Ride, an animated selection from the U.S.A., directed by Chang Shu.

"We've earned the "Hamilton' in our name because everything we do has been to enhance the local film scene and we are solely supported by Hamilton businesses, organizations and individuals.  Hamilton has a huge arts culture and we are honoured to be a big part of it.  We want the rest of Canada – the planet itself – to discover what we already know about this city," Fleet concludes.

Displacement, Representation, and Mistreatment [Factory Media Centre]

Displacement, Representation, and Mistreatment

August Art Crawl Screening
Friday, August 11, 2017 from 7 – 10pm

Free Admission; CW: Graphic scenes, violence.

Factory Media Centre is proud to host the Aabiziingwashi (Wide Awake) Indigenous Cinema Tour, a screening of films produced under the National Film Board of Canada by Indigenous filmmakers.

Displacement, Representation, and Mistreatment, curated by Grant Holt, is a selection of films sharing historical and contemporary themes about the Canadian government’s direct role in perpetuating injustices against Indigenous populations through forced migrations, a lack of representation, and violence. The Souvenir series remixes archival footage of Indigenous peoples with canonical imagery of Canada using non-traditional filmmaking techniques. By reclaiming the government’s propagandistic footage, the Souvenir series produces critiques of Canada itself. Four artists are included in these shorts, all of which focus primarily on identity and representation as well as displacement caused by residential schools. These four shorts are accompanied by longer films in a more traditional documentary style, which delve deeper into aggressive and violent aspects of government policies and their effects on Indigenous people. These films share a sense of necessity for the urgency of action against forced movements of people, government sanctioned injustices, and the lives lost and still being lost in the battle to defend Indigenous cultures and ways of life.

Screening Schedule:

The Souvenir Series: 
7:00 – 7:15 PM

1. Sisters & Brothers, Kent Monkman, 2015 (3:44)
A critique on Canada’s residential school system and a comparison to the annihilation of the bison in the late 19th century.

2. Etlinisigu’niet (Bleed Down), Jeff Barnaby, 2015 (5:08)
Showcasing the livestock like treatment against Indigenous populations, as well as the harsh realities of residential schools and the immense death tolls caused by disease, and the cost of industry profiting off the land.

3. Mobilize, Caroline Monnet, 2015 (3:32)
Mobilize takes us on a journey forward from the Far North to the urbanized South, highlighting the juxtapositions created between traditional Indigenous means of construction and the newer urbanization of the land.

4. Nimmikaage (She Dances for People), Michelle Latimer, 2015 (3:33)
A means to deconstruct a system of power and shift the importance onto the Metis and Inuit women. An overall attempt to reclaim identity and reverse colonialism.

7. Nowhere Land, Rosie Bonnie Ammaaq, 2015 (15:00)
A documentary that follows the life of Bonnie Ammaaq and her family’s transition from a government-manufactured community, into the vast and beautiful territory that can be described as somewhere. A commentary of what home really is and how their previous community of Igloolik, becomes described as nowhere.

8. Two Worlds Colliding, Tasha Hubbard, 2004 (49:00)
An inquiry into the story of Darrel Night and what has become known as Saskatoon’s “freezing deaths” where several local indigenous men have had their bodies discovered in freezing conditions brought on by police injustice and brutality.
