Manitoba Challenge

The WR2R Film Festival has eight categories. One of those categories is open to Manitobans making short films.

Intro:






Manitoba has an incredible pool of talented actors, directors, writers, editors, technical personnel and special effects coordinators. I had the privilege to be a part of making a feature film which was shot largely in Manitoba with an all Manitoba cast and crew. It is our goal to highlight Manitoba talent in this category.

Congratulations to all Manitoba Filmmakers!



Purpose:


To highlight the great Manitoba filmmakers in our province.
