Congratulations to the 18 filmmakers who received Funding, sponsored by MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC, through the Winnipeg Film Group’s programs this past year!
We offer three funding programs sponsored by MFM that enable emerging, intermediate and advanced filmmakers to create, market and screen their films. The semi-annual MFM Production Fund and MFM Marketing Fund, and the annual MFM First Film Fund have greatly contributed to the vast, creative roster of independent filmmakers who call Manitoba home. Thanks to the valuable, ongoing support of MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC we have awarded more than 350 Funds to more than 200 artists over the past two decades.
