Karelian Cowgirls was by far the best short I saw at the film fest. In 1939 Finnish girls received orders to move their family cattle away from the Russian troops and off into the deep snow they went. Now the ladies gather to talk about those extraordinary past days. Here's the cool trailer.
The film festival is official over and done for 2009 - here's a list of the films that won awards. Also the Vancity theatre is playing some favourites until Tuesday the 20th. You have another chance to see 65_RedRoses, Nora's Will and Only When I Dance. Also Queen to Play which I really wanted to see but didn't have the chance.
