Films @ Forth ! Free Film and popcorn! Beers only $5

Come down and enjoy a free film curated by our resident cinematic experts. Admission is free and enjoy a beer for only $5 and unlimited free popcorn! 

THIS WEEK:
Playtime
1967, France/Italy, 124 minutes
French (with English Subtitles)

Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed, nearly wordless comedies about confusion in an age of high technology reached their apotheosis with PlayTime. For this monumental achievement, a nearly three-year-long, bank-breaking production, Tati again thrust the lovably old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, into a baffling modern world, this time Paris. With every inch of its superwide frame crammed with hilarity and inventiveness, PlayTime is a lasting record of a modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.

The film is screened by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Forth. Beer and unlimited popcorn for $5.

Craig Winslow: A Discussion

Join experiential designer Craig Winslow on Thursday, July 27 as he talks ghost signs, his Adobe Creative Residency and the future of Light Capsules.

Date: Thursday July 27, 2017
Time: 8 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Forth
171 McDermot Avenue
Cost: Free

Presented by: 
GDC Manitoba - https://www.gdc.net/chapter/manitoba
Advertising Association of Winnipeg - http://www.adwinnipeg.ca/

Background

With a background in multimedia and 3D design, Craig Winslow has spent the past few years building his own studio and creating interactive work for clients. His Kickstarter project, Projecting West, inspired his latest idea of recreating ghost signs across the U.S. using “Light Capsules” and historical references. 

In 2016, he became an Adobe Creative Resident and over the past year, travelled to locations across the US and UK to illuminate more than 30 ghost signs. The process involves taking pictures of faded ads, vectorizing the letterforms in Illustrator, animating the sign in After Effects and then projecting the image back onto the original wall with MadMapper.

On Saturday July 29, 2017, the Portland-based artist is coming north of the border to help shine a light on Winnipeg’s ghost signs. The one-night-only event called Painted in Light is happening from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. in Winnipeg’s Exchange District at five separate locations. You can learn more about the installation at http://www.paintedinlight.ca/

Rapid Prototyping Night! Hosted by UX Winnipeg

It's the middle of summer. Half the office is on vacation, and you're working on the project that you started back in March. Sometimes projects go on so long we're not even sure why they exist. We need a kick-start to get our momentum (and motivation) going again. 

Join UX Winnipeg this July for a design-project zero workshop: a Stanford d-school concept.

In 90 minutes, you'll start with a challenge and end with a rough prototype solution. There's no time for analysis-paralysis or changing requirements—this is all you.

Come out for a chance to work with and get to know your fellow UX-Winnipeggers. We're keeping it casual, drinks and good company are a given.

Free! Films @ Forth "Mon Oncle" Hosted by Winnipeg Architecture

Mon Oncle
Directed by Jacques Tati
1958, France, 116 minutes
French (with English subtitles)
Slapstick prevails again when Jacques Tati’s eccentric, old-fashioned hero, Monsieur Hulot, is set loose in Villa Arpel, the geometric, oppressively ultramodern home of his brother-in-law, and in the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job. The second Hulot movie and Tati’s first color film, Mon oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned the director the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.

Poking fun at gadgetry and the car obsessed modern suburban landscape, while revelling in the charming persistence of the nearby town centre, Mon Oncle is an amusing satire of the modern lifestyle of materialist suburbanites. This Academy Award-winning film is as relevant today as it ever was—especially perhaps in Winnipeg where enlightened critiques of suburbia and modernity have yet to fully land and where those who cherish the creative force of anachronism tend to thrive.

The film is screened by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Forth. Beer and unlimited popcorn for $5.

We Are Not a Prize: A Black Discussion on Cultural Appropriation

On Tuesday evening June 27th, join us at Forth Cafe on McDermot. Our panel will be discussing their Afrocentric perspective on recent news around cultural appropriation in Canada. 

This event is, in part, brought about by the recent outrage caused by an article in a major Canadian magazine. The editor of the article stated that acts of cultural appropriation in writing should actually be praised in some form of a reward – an "Appropriation Prize." This same article was then published in their magazine's special issue dedicated to Indigenous writing.

Our discussion aims to unfold the effect of cultural appropriation in relation to the black experience, tackle misconceptions around the topic followed by an open Q&A session should time allow it.

Panel members:

Uzoma Chioma - Entrepreneur, Registered Psych. Nurse, former Team Canada Basketball Player & Founder of QPOC Winnipeg

Adeline Bird - Creator of Soul Unexpected & Author of the book "Be Unapologetically You: A Self-Love Guide for Women of Colour"

Alexa Potashnik - Racialized Student Commissioner, Radio Host of Raw Colours CKUW & Founder of Black Space Winnipeg

Keisha Mcintosh - Blogger, Activist, & Healthcare Support Worker
