KCFF: Rewind Fast Forward Podcast

We love talking about Canadian films so much we teamed up with Thom Ernst to create a podcast where we invite Canadian filmmakers to talk about their artistic influences past and present.

The first episode launches on January 25 featuring guest Jeff Barnaby.  Jeff is a Mi’kmaq filmmaker, writer, composer, and editor and you’ll likely remember seeing his stylistic RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS (KCFF14) and the highly effective zombie horror thriller, BLOOD QUANTUM (KCFF20) as part of KCFF. In this episode, Thom and Jeff chat about cinema, zombies, and colonialism.

New episodes will be launched weekly and feature guests like Festival faves Audrey Cummings and Matt Johnson and a few others that we’ll keep a secret for now. You can listen on your favourite podcast platform or check back here for updates.

Check out Kingston in these shows filmed in YGK last year!
