Released April 2007

In celebration of its 30th anniversary in 2004, the Winnipeg Film Group commissioned five of the most accomplished filmmakers who have come through its ranks to create a short film. Initially envisioned around the theme of the filmmaking process, each of the participating filmmakers interpreted this mandate broadly and the resulting movies span the spectrum of cinema—from animation to comedy, and dramatic to experimental.

WINNIPEG SAGA premiered at a Gala Presentation at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in April 2007.
