Welcome to The Scene 2018!

March 6-8, 2018

We’ve searched high and low for inspiring programs that will complement your school curriculum.

DESTINATION IMAGINATION

THE BIRTH OF A FAMILY

Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, meet together for the first time in this deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard. Removed from their young Dene mother’s care as part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.

IN THE NAME OF ALL CANADIANS

To commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, Hot Docs commissioned six short documentaries for the compilation In the Name of All Canadians. Participating filmmakers selected six of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms key tenets to explore and provoke conversation, from Indigenous rights to multiculturalism to the controversial ‘notwithstanding clause.’ An amazing conversation starter!

ANGRY INUK

In her award-winning documentary, director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit as they campaign to challenge long-established perceptions of seal hunting. Armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, this group is bringing its own voice into the conversation and presenting themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

ADVENTURES IN PRARIE PRODUCTION!

Your guide's Sophie and Hayley Kokott from Saskatoon's own Floor 13 Films will showcase the unique challenges, benefits and adventures that come with the creative process within Saskatchewan's film scene. Sophie and Hayley will detail the production cycle from soup to nuts and will follow up with a Q and A to help the students along their way towards their own creative ventures and show them how to make their prairie surroundings an asset rather than a hindrance!

Working alongside a friend, she soon discovers a new world of freedom and danger.
