Underground Film Journal Editor Interviewed For Winnipeg’s Uptown Magazine

By Mike Everleth ⋅ June 2, 2011

Mike Everleth, editor of the Underground Film Journal, was recently interviewed by film journalist Kenton Smith for Uptown Magazine, a weekly arts & news publication based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Mike was questioned about the extensive experimental film scene based in Winnipeg, which he writes about with some regularity on the Underground Film Journal. Winnipeg filmmakers such as Jaimz Asmundson, Clint Enns, Leslie Supnet, Heidi Phillips, Deco Dawson, Noam Gonick and more have all been reviewed and have had their films embedded on the Underground Film Journal. Plus, the site regularly reports on Winnipeg-based film festivals such as WNDX and Plastic Paper.

Although Winnipeg is usually described as a “small” city, it does have an unusually large and intense concentration of experimental filmmakers that one might be more accustomed to finding in large U.S. cities like NYC, San Francisco and Chicago.

It’s a fairly long interview, so go check it out!
