2023 Creative Campus Film Festival- Day Two

Join us in the viewing of various short and full-length films that will be shown at locations around campus, including the Cafeteria, Campus Centre Lobby, and the Boardmore Playhouse.

Featured Films: 

The Flying Sailor

Two ships collide in a harbour, an explosion shatters a city, and a sailor is blasted skyward. With ears ringing, blood pulsing and guts heaving, he soars high above the mayhem and towards the great unknown. A bold blend of comedy, suspense and philosophy, The Flying Sailor is an exhilarating contemplation of the wonder and fragility of existence. 


This short film, crafted entirely out of NFB archival footage by First Nations filmmaker Caroline Monnet, takes us on an exhilarating journey from the Far North to the urban south, capturing the perpetual negotiation between the traditional and the modern by a people moving ever forward. 

Part of the Souvenir series, it’s one of four films by First Nations filmmakers that address Indigenous identity and representation, reframing Canadian history through a contemporary lens.
