Margaret Mead fest packs house
Posted Wednesday, February 8, 2012 1:50 PM
The anthropology graduate students hosted the two-day Margaret Mead Traveling Film Festival at the Cinematheque on January 13 and 14. The event included guest speakers, food, panel discussions and free films for a packed house both nights. More than 200 Winnipeggers benefited from their efforts and enjoyed great films and interesting and lively dialogue about a range of social and cultural issues.

The festival is the longest-running premiere showcase for international documentaries in North America. This year’s screenings included seven documentaries, showcasing the work of filmmakers from across the globe and right here at home. The films, along with panel discussions and filmmaker Q&As, took place free of charge at the Cinematheque Theatre. The film and discussion topics varied, ranging from artificial intelligence to globalization; from folk music to climate change. The main organizers were David Boutlier and Hilary Gough with a team of many other students from the U of M Anthropology Student Association (UMASA).
