ITWÉ Collective (WNDX)
The ITWÉ Collective is a "trans-disciplinary art collective dedicated to research, creation, production and education in the field of Aboriginal digital culture. They are Aboriginal creators who work with digital technologies, fosters collaboration among diverse artistic disciplines and communities, establishes partnerships with industry and educational institutions and promotes its members at home and abroad." - Kevin Lee Burton.
So what exactly does that mean?
It means when graphic artist Sébastien Aubin, and filmmakers Kevin Lee Burton and Caroline Monnet put their collective brains together you get films and art projects that will enlighten your soul and make you think.
WNDX places special attention on the most innovative and ground-breaking work by Canadian filmmakers and video artists, with a special focus on the work of Manitoba and prairie artists.
Another filmmaker who had work debut at this year's festival was Darryl Nepinak. Known for his wry and ironic sense of humour, Darryl took time out to speak with Radio-Canada Manitoba's Sophie Freynet-Agossa.
