21st Annual Cinema CNC Film Festival: KONELINE
Friday March 3, 2017  |  7:00 PM
Prince George Playhouse, 2833 Recreation Place

KONELINE: our land is beautiful is a sensual, cinematic celebration of northwestern British Columbia, and all the dreamers who move across it. Some hunt on the land. Some mine it. They all love it. Set deep in the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation, KONELĪNE captures beauty and complexity as one of Canada’s vast wildernesses undergoes irrevocable change.
An art film with politics, drama, and humour, KONELĪNE: our land beautiful explores different ways of seeing—and being. A guide outfitter swims her horses across the vast Stikine River. The world’s biggest chopper flies 16,000-pound transmission towers over mountaintops. KONELĪNE‘s characters delight while smashing stereotypes: white hunters carry bows and arrows; members of the Tahltan First Nation hunt out of a pickup with high-powered rifles. There are diamond drillers—both Native and white—and elders who blockade them. There’s a Tahltan son struggling to preserve a dying language, and a white guy who sings “North to Alaska ” to his stuffed moose.

21st Annual Cinema CNC Film Festival: Weirdos
Friday March 3, 2017  |  9:30 PM
Prince George Playhouse, 2833 Recreation Place

In a small Nova Scotian town in 1976, 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authors) and his platonic girlfriend Alice (Julia Sarah Stone) decide to shake up their go-nowhere existence by hitchhiking to Sydney to visit Kit's glamorous but unstable mother (Molly Parker) — a journey that will force them to face some hard truths about themselves and point the way toward a more honest and fully-lived future. Beautifully shot in black and white and scored with a suitably killer '70s soundtrack, the new film from Canadian master Bruce McDonald and playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor spikes its coming-of-age road-movie template with a witty and inventive dash of magic realism.
