“Remembering the Past Looking to the Future” is the first screening in a series of Saskatchewan Women filmmakers, curated by Sandra Staples-Jetko. Women have been making films in Saskatchewan for over 100 years. They have worked as part of teams, independently and commercially. “Remembering the Past Looking to the Future” is a collection of eight short films gathered to screen in honour of the memory of Trudy Stewart, a well loved Saskatchewan Filmmaker who passed away October 2019.  The lineup includes films made in various styles including animation, experimental and cinema verité.
