Back to Square One Begins Festival Run

By Rein Cabalquinto

Back to Square One screening at the Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival in late February.

Lights. Camera. Action!

Our full-length documentary, Back to Square One, started its film festival run in late February at the Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival.

After two years of being held online, the Festival welcomed filmmakers, film enthusiasts, and families back to North Kildonan MB Church to enjoy a week of screenings.

Back to Square One was shown three times and received an Audience Choice Award based on crowd ratings.

The documentary has been submitted to a number of film festivals for screenings in 2023.

Recently, Back to Square One was selected to screen at the International Christian Film & Music Festival in Orlando, Florida after being nominated for "Best Documentary Film" and "Best Director (Documentary)". The film will be screened at the Wyndham Orlando Resort on Friday, May 5 at 11:50 a.m.

Our documentary film also became a finalist at the 2023 Cross Docs Christian Documentary Festival. It was selected to screen at the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival in Buffalo, New York later this year.
