This event is the result of more than 18 months of research and consulting with film and screen-based industry professionals and emerging artists in the Kootenays.

Schedule of Events

The goals of Kinesis are to showcase a wide array of film made by Kootenay artists and film companies, and to set a path forward for a thriving Kootenay film industry.

On his concept for this competition, Civic Theatre Programming Director Jason Asbell:  “As a hub for the community, its culture, and supporting screen-based industry workers in the Kootenays, this event fits perfectly within The Civic Theatre’s mandate, and let’s face it…. I like beer.”

The filmmakers’ creations will compete for prize money and the glory of the inaugural presentation of the Golden Ski Pole award at The Civic Theatre on the evening of September 23.

Details

Join us for a special community preview screening of Sherpa Cinemas’ Imagination before its official World Premiere at the iF3 Festival in Montreal in October 2017.  Inspired by JP Auclair, we will travel the streets of Nelson, British Columbia through the eyes of a young boy who manages to bring professional urban skier Tom Wallisch to realization. Together, they turn an otherwise drab winter commute into a ski adventure for the ages. Producer Mitch Scott looks back at the local experience of creating this piece: “Combining a distinct narrative with high-level action sports in the confines of a small town was one of the bigger producing challenges of my career. But long, cold days working with amazing people, incredible talent, and thanks to the unabated support of Nelsonites, the end product has (hopefully) turned into a piece people will resonate with and enjoy.”

Lucas Myers’ A Beginners Guide to Nelsonia features the mildly incompetent host Ryan, the good time ski bum and an array of acquaintances who all offer their own take on the town.We are pleased to include film interludes from this full work, which will be presented at the Capitol Theatre Sept. 29 and 30.

Featuring  Whitewater Ski ResortFreedom is a three-piece web series taking a glimpse into the day’s  Trace Cooke has to simply ski and explore his hometown playground. Trace is going into the 17/18 season ranked first in the Freeride World Tour. He re-qualified last season with enough time between stops to get after it with his friends.

In this short film, Legendary Filmmakers Teton Gravity Research visit Whitewater with pro skiers Tim Durtschi, Nick McNutt and Sage Cattabriga Alosa for a fun powder session.

BIKE is a short film dedicated to the bicycle from 16-year-old filmmaker and avid cyclist – Thomas Strother. It follows Thomas out on his bike during a torrential June rainstorm and eventually as far away as Galveston, Texas, showing excerpts from all sorts of biking adventures. The film was produced with help from mountain biker and fellow filmmaker, Evan Forst.

Sailing was shot on Kootenay lake near the end of June by Evan Forst. The inspiration for this film was nothing more than Evan wanting to show the natural beauty of this area.  He also wanted to create a relaxing vibe with his short, one that just reminds you of summer.

Impossible is Nothing, an action packed short film directed by Steve Hall of Stacked Films, follows a legendary backcountry motocross rider and a jet boat as they team up to cover some extraordinary terrain within the Kootenays.

The #FindingAwesome series – Presented by Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism and directed by Freeride EntertainmentWhat if I told you the fountain of youth wasn’t a fountain? It was a place, a place still ruled by giants. And inhabited by mystical creatures. A place where you could still look up in awe. A place where it’s not only okay to feel small, it’s highly encouraged. What if I could tell you where to find it? #FindingAwesome is easy when you travel to the magical Nelson and Kootenay Lake region.

Homestead, a short film produced by Inflik MediaSomewon Collective and Valley Retreat B & B, follows a household of close friends as they scratch the surface of the vast and endless backcountry terrain Revelstoke has to offer. Ultimately leading them to become “Revelstuck”, the term used for people who come to enjoy the season and end up staying in the community. Join director, Kaleb Weston, as he follows Vinzenz KellerJordy KidnerJake TeutonSammy Carlson, and the Wasted Youth collective deep into the Canadian Rockies.

Join director Tristan Martin-Preney in his film Wtf is Style?, in which he humbly explores the notion of style within skiing and snowboarding. What does it mean? Where does it come from? Who has it?

Best known for his detailed illustrations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth mythology, British Columbian John Howe is greatly responsible for the look of The Lord of the Rings movies. This thoughtful documentary, Lord of the Brush,  sheds lights on Howe’s childhood growing up in the small rural town of Keremeos, British Columbia. It also offers a trove of Lord of the Rings analysis with ecological interpretations of the original books and how West Coast geography seeped (via Howe) into our idea of what Middle-earth should look like. Directed by Gretchen Jordan-Bastow, and presented as part of Moving Pictures: Canadian Films on Tour.

Random Media and Pollinator Films proudly celebrate all hard working moms, debuting the hilarious, touching and timely new comedy, The Bad Mother!  Inspired by real life, Sarah Kapoor wrote the story of Tara, a mid-30s woman who has to ‘lean out’ of her successful career to take care of her kids. The lid of her frustration is blown off when her five-year-old son accidentally posts a private rant she wrote about her husband’s evil workplace to the Internet, catapulting her from obscurity, into a viral sensation. Tara and her family must deal with the dizzying consequences, which includes judgment in the court of public opinion; a reunion with her ex- boyfriend, played by social media sensation David Avocado Wolfe; and the humbling eye of her mother. In a funny and relatable story, the film features Writer/co-Director Sarah Kapoor, who cast her friends and family as fictionalized versions of themselves.

10:15 AM   Equity for Women in Film & Arts featuring Tricia Braun, Gretchen Jordan-Bastow, Sarah Kapoor, and Joanna Maratta
It is no shocker, although it should be, that women and men do not hold equal status in the film industry. Many women in Hollywood, such as Jennifer Lawrence are standing up and speaking against unequal pay and other gender parity issues.  Join us for a conversation between women with experience working in film, tech and arts in the Kootenays and elsewhere.

 12:00 PM   Brown Bag Picnic Screening: The Last Mountain Cariboo & Food Flix

Comers looks at the issues that have resulted in the situation the caribou face today, along with what can be done in the future to save these majestic animals from disappearing altogether.

Food Flix, Affolter Entertainment’s award-winning animated shorts starring stuff from your vegetable drawer. Note to parents: while the idea of sentient fruits and veggies hanging out watching animated films sounds kid-friendly to you, please note that these shorts aren’t for young audiences.

1:15 PM    Producing and Funding Rural Film with Joanna Maratta and Gretchen Jordan-Bastow
As we all know, we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. With that beauty, comes a sense of seclusion which can be challenging when working in an industry such as film. The challenges range from city compliance to limited resources to funding rural projects, and more. This session will touch on how these challenges are navigated, and how we can shape the future of our local industry to support our dreams.

Counter Act, an Affolter Entertainment Production, begins with Alice Adams sitting alone in a small-town American diner at lunchtime circa 1960, which suddenly begins to buzz when two strangers enter that stick out even worse than she does. Two young African-Americans, Mary and Ray, take a seat at the whites-only counter, asking to be served with simplicity and courtesy. Alice witnesses the racism they immediately encounter, and in turn she’s presented with an opportunity that will change her life forever: Alice decides to support the cause, joining Mary and Ray for the “sit-in” protest. But when tensions begin to boil in the diner, will Alice’s good intentions be enough to protect the integrity of the non-violent protest started by Mary and Ray?

Out of the Interior: Survival of the Small-town Cinema in British Columbia is an exploration of classic movie theatres in BC’s southern interior, from Vernon’s Towne Cinema to Creston’s Tivioli; from Grand Forks’ GEM to Revelstoke’s Roxy – and every stop along the way. The filmmakers delve into the history of public film exhibition in our province, celebrate the communal moviegoing experience in the present – and offer a glimpse of the movie house’s future in the digital age. The documentary is also a tribute to the hard-working men and women of the region who keep the popcorn hot and the movies flickering on our screens.

FREE Open Space Meeting (9:30 AM – 5:00 PM)

Open Space is a simple and powerful approach to manage parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance. It’s been called passion bounded by responsibility, the energy of a good coffee break, intentional self-organization, spirit at work, chaos and creativity, evolution in organization, and a simple, powerful way to get people and organizations moving — when and where it’s needed most.

Our Question: What does the Future Look Like for the Kootenay Film and Screen-Based Industry?

Join us to raise the most important issues for the Kootenay Film and Screen-Based Industry, build recommendations for the future, suggestions for further action, insightful conclusions, and clear priorities, all of which will be available in a summary report after the event. Whether you work in the industry or love the idea of a thriving local film industry, all are welcome: whoever comes is exactly the right people.

Screening: The Change Agents (7:00pm)

A Free Community Screening of this powerful film, where Nelson, its students, advocates and film professionals came together to independently shoot and produce a feature length film.

A Free Member Monday film for Civic Members and Kinesis pass holders and open space participants.

The Change Agents is the coming-of-age story of Carly Dutoff, a Doukhobor girl living with her Deda (Grandfather) in a beautiful mountain town in the interior of British Columbia.

Carly has become alienated from her peers due to her growing obsession with the pressing environmental issues facing the planet today.

Her friends, many of whom support the environmental movement in principle, “just want to have fun” during their final year of high school. Carly, however, is unable to forget her fears about the planet’s uncertain future.

Frustrated by the apathy of the adults who surround her… Carly draws upon her Doukhobor ancestry and along with a few faithful followers organizes a youth driven movement that challenges their community and all Canadians to step up and show environmental global leadership.

The Change Agents is a drama about finding the strength to turn your beliefs into action.

It is an important film because it captures the authentic voice of youth and leaves us hopeful.

Screening: The Naked Queen (9:00 PM)

2017 marks the tenth anniversary of the release of the Kootenaymade film The Naked Queen. Starting with the ancient history of cannabis and leading to the extremism of US federal policy, this feature documentary strips away the propagandist illusions about cannabis. The Naked Queen explores cannabis from a cultural rural Canadian perspective – now timely given the Canadian government’s plan to legalize it.

Director Bio:

Sarah Kapoor is an award-winning filmmaker and Creative Director at Pollinator Films. Her work has aired too many places to list, but her favorite mention is when Oprah said her name and played a segment of her Past Life Investigation (CBC) series on her show. That was so thrilling and nerve-wracking that Sarah hid in a janitorial area while it was happening. After spending her 20s working in news, documentary and format creation (Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister) at the CBC in Toronto, she co-founded a production company – The choice to be her own boss was inspired by having children. Kapoor is in the process of inventing a model for story-telling that supports bringing the internal journey of a character to the forefront. Her latest film, The Bad Mother, applies the model for the first time and was released by LA based distributor Random Media this summer. She credits her childhood in Creston for providing the perfect mixture of boredom, anxiety and encouragement to foster creativity.

Steve Hall – Born in the small town of Castlegar British Columbia, nestled at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Steve Hall was an avid film enthusiast at a very young age. While in high school, he won first prize at the Vancouver Film Festival for “Best Amateur Documentary”. From that moment on, his love of film and dream of becoming a film maker grew into an obsession.
Steve grew up riding dirt bikes and racing motocross but found himself behind the lens more often than the subject of the camera. He naturally progressed from filming his friends ride moto to pursuing a path in films that lit up the big screen. He moved to Vancouver and started out as a grip in a B grade horror film, eventually making his debut as an assistant camera man in an award winning independent film. Steve realized that creating somebody else’s vision wasn’t the satisfaction he had hoped for, so he left Vancouver and headed back into the southern interior of British Columbia to find himself and to stay true to his roots. There Steve teamed up with Tyler Hadikin and they both came together to create Stacked Films. A company that promotes their love of film and helps dreamers to dream.

Tyler Hadikin grew up in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia Canada and claims that it has been the single greatest inspiration in his life. Being surrounded by such beauty made it nearly impossible for Tyler to not want to capture it all on camera. Growing up, Tyler had always found himself behind a camera filming what him and his friends did best, and later editing and refining the footage just because he loved it. After sharing some time on the opposite side of the lense as a semi-professional snowmobile athlete, he decided to start taking the film aspect of his life more seriously. Tyler decided to start up a local company (Kootenay Rider) and began creating videos simply for everyone else to enjoy. He felt the feeling of satisfaction from others appreciation of his work outweighed that of his snowmobiling career and started to realize his true potential.

Tyler and his long term friend Steve Hall, who was also an avid film enthusiast, decided to team up and pool their resources to make something special. Together they created Stacked films and are eager to provide the highest quality videography to those who seek out their skills and love of the art form.
