From May 6 to 14, the National Film Board of Canada’s The Grasslands Project will have its world premiere in a series of local screenings in villages and towns across the southern Prairies.
Created by filmmaker Scott Parker, along with NFB executive producer David Christensen, The Grasslands Project is a collection of 10 short films exploring one of the most accessible, but least known, of all the regions in Canada. Nine small communities across southern Alberta and Saskatchewan are featured in the project―each getting their own local premiere, with a selection of films specially tailored for their area.
Community screenings kick off in southern Alberta, in Magrath (May 6), Coutts (May 7) and Foremost (May 8), then travel to Saskatchewan, in Val Marie (May 9), Rockglen (May 10), Radville (May 11), Gravelbourg (May 12), Wood Mountain (May 13) and Eastend (May 14).
