PROGRAM

UMFF Focus - Prequel:Rocky-Canada

The Canadian Rockies represent the vast and primitive nature of Canada. 

Bordering Canada’s western British Columbia and Alberta provinces, the Rockies are a vast mountain range that extends to Northern US. It entails four national parks including Banff National Park, home of the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival. Canada continues to make efforts to preserve and protect its natural habitat, which leads to active participation in movements related to climate change, such as global warming and environmental destruction. 

 

Canada is also respectful and considerate to cultural diversity and coexistence, which is evident in how they use terms like 'First Nation' rather than 'native' or 'indigenous' and have both English and French as official languages. 

 

We have prepared films that portray Canada’s cultural diversity, mutual respect, and nature: a new film by director Denis Côté who is known to represent Canadian film in many film festivals; a film with a cultural anthropological perspective, Harvest Moon; and a series of shorts dealing with various social issues like Canada First Nation and illegal immigration. A big thank you to the embassy of Canada for helping to prepare this prequel section.
