WIFF 2015 - A word from WIFF’s Artistic Director
This year’s line-up of award-winning international films has a distinctly Canadian flavour. We’ve two films by Quebec filmmakers exploring aboriginal subjects, along with a third based on a book by a Quebec economist. Then there’s our Kafkaesque security system.
All are essential viewing in what is a federal election year.
Then our first film from the Yukon offers another way to live that better reflects the kind of Canada I thought I was moving to 40 years ago.
In between we have an international spy thriller, a soccer film that’s about playing the game not about winning and a biography of an extraordinary musical friendship.
Welcome to our 6th edition of the Wakefield International Film Festival.
