WinterREELS 2017 Banner

WinterREELS hosted by the Fort McMurray Filmmakers Association

The Fort McMurray Filmmakers Association is happy to partner with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo for WinterREELS 2017 as a part of WinterPLAY. Each year, local filmmaking teams of all levels are invited to participate in the annual 48 hour film challenge where they will be challenged to make a short film using three random elements for a chance to win a cash prize! These films will be screened at McMurray Experience (9909 Franklin Ave.) during WinterPLAY along with the Hollywood feature film that inspired the elements. This year's feature film will be a FREE screening of Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (Rated PG-13)

  • Friday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. – Film Challenge kick-off at the McMurray Experience
  • Saturday, Feb. 25 from 7 – 10 p.m. – Screening of the 48 hour film challenge followed immediately by a screening of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY at the McMurray Experience
