Well, this looks pretty cool, but it makes me wish I had paid more attention back in French class. Thank goodness there is an explanation in English, and it goes as follows:

Thursday, February 6 / 7 pm at the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque
Curated by Alain Delannoy, featuring a Q&A

This program is a selection of terrific short films created by young Francophone women while studying at the Université de Saint-Boniface in the Communication Multimedia program. The work covers a 10-year period, produced from 2002 to 2013. These are some of the first works for many of these women and they are truly distinct and incredibly imaginative. The stories and the way they are told are fresh, inventive, and often experimental. From a giraffe that wants someone else’s head, to a couple who make love through phonographs, this screening will take you on a strange journey through a lens that is unique and awesome. The program is a mix of live action video, animation and 3D animation shorts. While some films are presented in their original French soundtrack, others are language free and have no dialogue.

Featuring works by: Noémie Hordies, Riel Foidart, Jocelyne Le Léannec. Paulette Shnier, Melanie Lemoine, Zoé Fortier, Nathalie Dupont, Marie-Josée Dandeneau, Jamie Morneau, Dominique Beutel, Sylvie Beaudry, Melissa Finch, Arielle Morier-Roy, Lianne Sabourin and Lori Dyck
