Some of you will know about a film I made a few years ago called
Trains of Winnipeg - 14 Film Poems. The film was part of a project
that had a number of objectives, or areas that I wanted to explore.
But one way I thought of it, from the start, was as a 'film
publishing project'. I wanted to see if it was possible to find
widespread and good quality 'personal use' video distribution for an
avant garde/experimental film. And now I finally have that, as the
full feature-length Trains of Winnipeg cycle is available on The
Auteurs: http://www.theauteurs.com/films/21364 (as of today).
**Note that viewing is FREE for a limited time only.**
If you're looking to buy or rent Trains of Winnipeg for yourself or a
cinematheque or institution, you can do so at the Canadian Filmmakers
Distribution Centre: http://www.cfmdc.org/home.php (35mm + DVD, the
whole feature-length cycle, or each individual short film).
In Europe only, exhibitors should contact the European Media Art
Festival: http://www.emaf.de (35mm and PAL Betacam, feature-length
It's quickly becoming a rarity, but if it's possible for you to do so
please consider screening the 35mm print. However good these other
formats have become, this is still the PREMIUM way to see it (you
might call it a rough equivalent to seeing a musician live in
concert). Again, this is available thru either the CFMDC or EMAF.
The project's website will be left up for the long term as well, if
you want some context: http://www.trainsofwinnipeg.com .
All The Best,
