Abstract

One of the only film manifestos to emerge from Canada to contain both Anglophone and Francophone signatories, along with filmmakers from both the private and public sectors, “The Winnipeg Manifesto” echoes the Québécois APCQ manifesto from 1971 (see Association professionnelle des cinéastes du Québec, “The Cinema: Another Face of Colonised Québec,” in chap. 3 of this volume), demanding a publically funded alternative to private sector filmmaking. This goal was realized to some extent with the transformation of the CFDC (Canadian Film Development Corporation, founded in 1967, and the “half-hearted” measure decried herein) into Telefilm Canada in 1984. The Winnipeg Symposium also led to the emergence of the Winnipeg Film Group, whose filmmakers, most notably Guy Maddin, would go on to great acclaim in the 1980s and 1990s.
