It’s the third largest festival of its kind and its happening right here in Winnipeg. 

 

The Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival (WAFF), in its 12th year, is dedicated to bringing together the best of new indigenous film and video, from across Canada and around the world.

Starting Wednesday, November 20 CBC Manitoba will bring you interviews, reviews and coverage of the festival.

Information Radio takes you behind the scenes of Rhymes for Young Ghouls,  Up to Speed and CBC Manitoba SCENE brings you top picks for the festival, and CBC News Winnipeg talks to a young Winnipeg filmmaker who overcame remarkable odds to make her film, Yes I Can. 

Wednesday night, CBC News with hosts Janet Stewart and Mitch Peacock will broadcast live from the festival's opening night at Portage Place.
