Wapikoni’s Cinema on Wheels caravan is hitting the roads for a third consecutive year to travel across Manitoba, Ontario and Québec. Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences will get to see a new selection of award-winning shorts that travelled and were screened at the best national and international festivals. The selected films were all directed by emerging filmmakers from Canada’s Indigenous communities. These movies are sharing many stories from our cultures.
On July 30th, join us at The Forks, at Oodena Circle in Winnipeg, for a cinema evening showcasing a selection of short movies from Turtle Island's Indigenous filmmakers. We will be collaborating with Indigenous Women's Healing Circle and Shawenim Abinoojii Inc, and more guests to come.
Wapikoni’s Cinema on Wheels offers distinct one-hour programs, for all ages (both adults and children) and are available in English and French - and many Indigenous languages. Discover the talent of emerging young Indigenous filmmakers, learn about different Indigenous cultures and engage in enriching discussions with the two projectionist animators.

This event will be hosted on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, Ininew, Dakota, Dene, and Oji-Cree Nations. We also recognize that Winnipeg is covered by Treaty 1 that was entered between the 7 First Nations and the Crown in 1871. We recognize that Manitoba is the birthplace of the Metis Nation.
