CINEMATHEQUE AT HOME

Dave Barber’s Birthday Bash

Tue, Oct 26 / 7pm
Live online screening

On July 26th we tragically lost our beloved coworker, mentor and friend, the iconic Dave Barber. Dave was the programmer of the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque since its inception in 1982. We have all been feeling the massive hole left without his friendly presence and unique sense of humour, especially now as we approach his 68th birthday on October 26th. Dave’s humour can be seen in the many Cinematheque commercials he starred in, in which he invokes an over-the-top huckster charm inspired by Kern Hill and SCTV. Working with Dave on these commercials was one of the truest pleasures known to the WFG staff. 

Join us to celebrate Dave’s birthday with this program of Cinematheque ads (some never before seen!), Dave’s early Super 8 shorts and more recent films Sid & Nancy and Will the some of his starring roles in local shorts, and a never-seen extended interview outtake from Tales from the Winnipeg Film Group with Dave about his history with the WFG, courtesy of Kevin Nikkel.

Come to laugh, reminisce, and rejoice in Dave’s unique and enduring spirit.

All proceeds from this screening will go to the Dave Barber Memorial Endowment Fund.
