We have wrapped up our 16th FemFest with an amazing array of artists. We are now beginning planning for September 2019! Submissions are being accepted until the end of November – spread the word.

FEMFEST 2019: All the World’s a Stage
Celebrating Winnipeg’s 17th Festival of Life-Changing Theatre for Everyone

Sarasvàti Productions is accepting submissions for its 17th annual FemFest, which will take place in September 2019. We are currently seeking submissions of scripts for production, short performance pieces for various showcases and applications from storytellers interested in participating. Our focus this year is work that explores global connections. All submissions must be from Canadian women. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome pieces created by all who fit under either of these categories/identifiers. Technical and set requirements must be minimal due to the festival setting. A reading committee will assess submissions in order to program a balanced festival.

New Beginnings’ Videos

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

In May 2018, we were excited to bring to the stage our latest community collaboration called New Beginnings. It was the coming together of a diverse range of artists, community members, recent newcomers, and established immigrants. Through the use of dance, music, visual art, and storytelling, we explored the themes of displacement and resettlement.

Parts of New Beginnings featured short films as pieces of the storytelling. We are pleased to share below the powerful videos created by Snow Angel Films for this production.

If you missed your chance to see New Beginnings or want to see more of what we’ve developed from this project, we’ll be debuting our high school touring production, Home 2.0, starting October 15, 2018. Click here for more information.
