Three Feathers, a short film directed by Carla Ulrich and filmed in and around Fort Smith, NWT, won Best Picture (Short Program) at the Canadian Faith & Family Film Festival in Toronto.
Based on a story by indigenous author Richard Van Camp, the film was produced by the South Slave District Educational Board as a language. The story was ambitiously adapted in four languages: English, Chipewyan, South Slavey and Bush Cree, with all dialogue scenes being recorded four times – once in each language/dialect.
Three Feathers is also set to screen at the Vancouver International Film Festival this weekend (Sept 29 & 30).
