As spring erupts and we continue to connect from home, CSI Connects is taking a short break from our ongoing How To workshop series to pause and celebrate home-grown storytellers.
In support of CSI Member Reel Canada and National Film Day, we’ll be screening a mini-festival of short films (3-15 minutes long) told by Canadian and Indigenous filmmakers. The screening will make room for sharing of impressions and reflections and give us an opportunity to take a collective breath as we think about what it means to be at home on these lands, and how the stories we tell make our realities.
