Winnipeg Underground Film Festival
June 1 to 4th, 2017

THE <90 SECOND // 7pm, June 2nd
At the Rachel Browne Theatre (2nd Floor, 211 Bannatyne Ave)

The fifth edition of a WUFF tradition: fifty-ish ultra-short films and videos from Winnipeg and around the world, divided over eight blocks. This is the perfect introduction for the uninitiated, a self-contained film festival in miniature, and a good time all-around. Lots to love; don't love? It'll be over in a minute. New work from Canada, Belarus, Germany, Japan, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
