WFI presents new building plans at celebration of 20th anniversary

The Weengushk Film Institute (WFI), Canada’s first Indigenous film school, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. The evening included a presentation on the design of the new WFI school building, which was created by the architects Elastico Farm in collaboration with KFA Architects and planners. The new building will feature cutting-edge screen designs and include classrooms, workspaces, and a theatre. “WFI has brought a light of hope for many of our Indigenous and diverse youth,” said school founder Dr Shirley Cheechoo. The celebration was followed by the three-day Weengushk International Film Festival.
