My Projects

What I'm working on right now

I shoot one short every couple of years. Currently I am working on two different scripts. Both are political films inspired by events in North America but both have elements of fantasy and magical reality similar to Period Piece and my previous short Tucked and Folded Away.

About Me

James McLellan is a filmmaker and high school teacher in Winnipeg.

The themes for his films are inspired by events and experiences that he has witnessed as a teacher, soldier, adventurer and father.

Period Piece, winner of the Best Canadian Short Film award at the Toronto Afterdark Film Festival and Audience Choice Manitoba Short Film Award at the Gimli Film Festival aired on CBC’s Short Film Face Off on September 19 in a countdown to the best short film in Canada.

James’ previous short film Tucked and Folded Away toured the festival circuit and is now available online.
