Kathryn Martin (Winnipeg)

After studying Fine Arts in Paris France, Kathryn Martin found herself surrounded by filmmakers and learning film. Piss on You: Winnipeg’s early punk scene is her first venture into documentary filmmaking having completed four short form dramatic films which won; a NSI Drama Prize, Telefilm and the B.C. Directors Guild Kick Start Award, WIFT-T Kodak Canada Vision Award and a Manitoba Blizzard Award. She believes the ‘capitalists’ have run the world for too long and it’s time to kick ass and revive our ‘punk rock spirits.’
