2012 film guide

An explorer adventures into an unknown world, yet it seems that he has been there before.

Dennis Jackson

Talon and Raven have lived in Wapos Bay all their lives, so when their dad takes a job in the big city, the two are shocked at the prospect of leaving the place they have always called home. Each reacts differently: Talon sets off to complete his bucket list with his friends, while Raven takes matters into her own hands and begins planning a campaign for her father to run as chief of Wapos Bay. But when things get out of control, Raven and Talon must band together before it's too late.


This all-you-can-eat brunch is fun for the whole family!  We've got bagels and bannock with a choice of savory and sweet toppings.  And they'll be plenty of hot coffee for the adults. Then you can make your own animated film before the screening of WAPOS BAY: LONG GOODBYES at 1:00.

Note: if you're only joining us for the brunch, tickets are $5 adult; $3 child, youth, & senior (11:30-1:00). Cash only at the door.

Join us for a FREE animation workshop with instructor Elisa Chee from 11:30-4:30.

Two children play in a colourful and ever-changing world. Without dialogue.

Amanda Forbis, Wendy Tilby

Borrowing playfully from the western, the nature documentary and eyewitness reportage, this animated film offers a fresh, wry take on the Canadian frontier experience.  Wild Life is about the beauty of the untamed prairie, the pang of being homesick and the folly of living dangerously out of context.
