Winnipeg Crankie Festival
SAVE THE DATE!
The 3rd edition of the Winnipeg Crankie Festival will be a virtual one – streaming on various platforms March 5 – 7, 2021.
Founded in 2018 by Home Routes / Chemin Chez Nous, with the support of Artfest and Crescent Fort Rouge United Church, CrankieFest features nightly weekend shows and daytime programming, all geared towards family and audience participation. The festival celebrates crankies, which are the forerunner of modern film, and combines visual art, music and the written word to create an interactive experience for all ages. It is one of only a handful in North America celebrating crankies and the art of storytelling within one festival.
We would like to thank our Crankie Festival partners, the Crescent Arts Centre & the West End Cultural Centre who worked with us this year and we look forward to working with them again, along with the great cast of characters we have engaged for this year’s event.
It is extremely important to us to maintain a system of producing and supporting Manitoba artists, and we are excited to present all of the amazing aspects of the WInnipeg Crankie Festival online in March 2021.
Stay tuned for line-up and schedule announcements coming in early 2021!
