Local artists and filmmakers are coming together in a unique collaboration to support Cinematheque. The special event, dubbed Bands vs. Filmmakers, will feature some of Manitoba's favourite acts playing to the film and video art of some of Winnipeg's creative and unique visionary artists.
The Weakerthans' John K. Samson is set to host the event. Former Novillero bandmates Rod Slaughter and Dave Berthiaume will perform as The Shallow End, Juno-winning roots outfit Nathan it getting back on stage after a length absence, and D.Rangers' Jaxon Haldane and Tom Twisty Fodey will hit the stage with American Flamewhip's Chris MAMA Bauer as The JAXON 3.
Featured filmmakers include Mike Maryniuk, Heidi Phillips, Aaron Zeghers (who also fronts SitDownTracy), and Clint Enns.
Proceeds from this event, which includes a silent auction, will go to support Cinematheque. Click here for more details.
