President's Message

We are seeing an increase in production as we head into summer. The direct flights to LA, the new studio spaces, and the federal government’s plan to invest $100 million into Telefilm are all positive signs that Manitoba is well-poised to support the industry. Manitoba will get a seat at the IPA negotiating table for the first time in ACTRA’s history - thank you Paul Essiembre for acting as our representative!
