Special Presentation: Wintopia

DOXA is proud to kick off the 2020 online festival with Wintopia, directed by Mira Burt-Wintonick. Wintopia traces the enigmatic footsteps of iconic Canadian documentary filmmaker Peter Wintonick through his daughter Mira’s lens, as she tries to decipher the map he has left behind. Reverberating with emotion and whimsy, the film guides us on a journey through possible worlds in pursuit of reconciliation, both between artist and family, and between dreams and reality.

Wintopia will be available to stream in the DOXA virtual festival platform starting June 18, 2020. Audiences are encouraged to watch the film within the first few days of our festival, and to join us for a special conversation between Mike Killeen (co-anchor of CBC Vancouver News), director Mira Burt-Wintonick and Nettie Wild, one of Canada’s leading documentary filmmakers and Peter Wintonick’s long-time collaborator.
 

Save the date!  The live Q&A will be streamed through the DOXA online festival on Saturday, June 20 at 7:00 PM PT. It will also be available via Facebook LIVE on the DOXA Documentary Film Festival Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DOXAfestival/.
