Winnipeg’s Deco Dawson, Jeffrey Erbach, Danishka Esterhazy, Sean Garrity and Paula Kelly have all built accomplished careers as independent filmmakers, achieving a level of recognition for their work that only a very few in Winnipeg have attained.

While any successful career as an independent filmmaker is founded in making ‘good’ films, there are also a lot of experiences – and lessons learned – that can take a filmmaker into the realm of national and international recognition. In this panel discussion that is targeted at aspiring and emerging filmmakers, these five directors will provide insight into the process of evolving from aspiring to be a filmmaker, to becoming one – and then how to sustain this career. Among the topics to be discussed include how to successfully bridge the gap between art and industry, and the role played by the conscious awareness of a unique voice.
