“… The first full-length feature film shot in the N.W.T. is quickly becoming a celebrated selection at some major Canadian film festivals.
Mohawk-actor Kawennárhere Devery Jacobs won the award for best performance in a Canadian film at the Whistler Film Festival on Sunday for her performance in The Sun at Midnight.
“I’m just filled with gratitude,” said Jacobs in an interview Tuesday. “I had no expectations going to shoot it in the Northwest Territories. We just went to film this ultra low-budget project, and it was such a passion project that I really hold dear to my heart.” […]
It’s the first acting award Jacobs has received, and she credits Carthew’s talent for the win.
“It’s all because of our writer-director [#Yellowknife’s] Kirsten Carthew. Her writing, if you look at the film, there really isn’t a lot of plot-driven stories, so it really rests on the shoulders of myself and [co-star] Duane Howard to carry the film, which I haven’t’ had the opportunity to do in past projects.” […]
The Whistler Film Festival marks the film’s second screening outside the N.W.T.
The Sun at Midnight also screened at imagineNATIVE in October, complete with a standing ovation from the audience.…”

N.W.T. gov’t won’t save Yellowknife’s Robertson headframe
Agreement could not be reached with mine owner, says GNWT
“…The Con Mine (1938-2003) was the first gold mine developed in the Northwest Territories, just south of Yellowknife.[1] The property was staked by Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada (Cominco) in September 1935 in response to the discovery of visible gold nearby; the name “Con” is an abbreviation of “Consolidated”. The advent of winter prevented any prospecting from being conducted, but work in the summer of 1936 led to the discovery of numerous gold veins. The Con Mine entered production in 1938 and ceased operations in 2003. It has produced over 5,000,000 ozt (160,000 kg) of gold from 12,195,585 tons of ore processed.[2] The mine was over 6,000 ft (1,800 m) deep.[3]…”

Why Poverty? uses broadcast & online film to get people talking about poverty.

Why Poverty? is a groundbreaking, cross-media event, online and on TV, using films to get people talking about poverty. Why Poverty? uses film to get people talking about poverty.
We’ve commissioned award-winning film makers to make eight documentaries about poverty, and new and emerging talents to make around 30 short films. The films tackle big issues and pose difficult questions, but they’re also moving, subtle and thought-provoking stories.
They transmit around the world in November 2012, on more than 70 national broadcasters reaching 500 million people. They’ll be accompanied by events designed to spark global and national debates and an online conversation to get people asking “Why Poverty?”
You can watch clips and shorts online now, and find out more about what’s happening in your country.
After November, the documentaries will be available to everyone online and we’ll begin an outreach programme, building on the momentum from broadcast.
Watch the films here
You can find out when to watch on TV in your country, or come back to see full-length versions of the documentaries online after broadcast.
