Return of the Far Fur Country Project Update
In advance of the anticipated 2013 re-release of the historic 1920 film Romance of the Far Fur Country, Five Door Films has been screening excerpts all across Canada (see In the News for June 2012). After August screenings in southern British Columbia and in Cochrane and Moose Factory, Ontario, Five Door Films headed to northern Manitoba, southern Ontario and the south Baffin region of Nunavut.
Five Door Films is committed to presenting this project in remote regions of Canada where some of the original Romance of the Far Fur Country footage was shot. They are eager to note reactions and collect stories from those watching who might have connections to the historic film.
More screenings are promised in upcoming months, including some in the United States. To follow the Return of the Far Fur Country Project be sure to visit the project’s website and blog.
