Starting February 2020, FTM will be featured on advertisements on Winnipeg Transit buses traveling around the city. FTM’s ACTION! Campaign is designed to attract more workers to Manitoba’s burgeoning film and television industry.
“As a unique human resources, training and workforce development organization for Manitoba’s film and television industry, we provide hands-on skills development to grow our industry and we really appreciated working with Winnipeg Transit on this important new initiative to promote our industry.” said FTM’s Managing Director Adam Smoluk.
