Freeze Frame the International Film Festival for Kids of All Ages
Freeze Frame, the International Film Festival for Kids of All Ages, was created to provide young people in Manitoba access to quality films and videos from around the world. Freeze Frame selects films and videos that will entertain and challenge children and youth by exploring situations and issues not normally explored in mainstream media. While most countries produce quality movies and television programs for youth, these productions are rarely seen by the general public. Freeze Frame brings these films and videos to Manitoba because they are a window into other cultures and allow us to explore new or unfamiliar storytelling and filmmaking styles.
Freeze Frame also offers a variety of workshops, videos, activities and more all year round! The Festival dates are:
- Monday, March 8
- Tuesday, March 9
- Wednesday, March 10
- Thursday, March 11
- Friday, March 12
- Saturday, March 13
- Sunday, March 14

Winnipeg Architecture Foundation Tours
With Winnipeg Architecture Foundation Tours, you can experience interactive or digital tours of Winnipeg’s beautiful and incredible buildings.
There are two options for interactive tours.
Archi 10 – Archi10 is a free bilingual app that works as a self-guided tour, sharing information about Winnipeg’s built environment. The app synchronizes with Winnipeg Transit Route #10, which passes by some of Winnipeg’s most significant buildings located in three important neighbourhoods: Wolseley, Downtown, and St. Boniface. When near selected places of interest, the narrators alert users and describe the buildings. Original music created specifically for these urban landscapes accompanies the user throughout the ride. While the app is tailored for use on the bus, it is also a handy resource that can be used at any time.
QR Code Tour – Decals containing QR (Quick Response) Codes have been placed on a selection of significant architectural projects and designed landscapes throughout Winnipeg. The QR Code Tour is a public education project, providing immediate and accessible information about Winnipeg’s built environment via a mobile device. A growing list of participant sites are identified on the map on their website. Follow this link for more details and the map.
