It’s with sad news Manitoba’s film industry learned of the passing of Dave Barber. Yesterday evening Dave’s family shared a message that he has passed away.
Dave was a senior staff member at the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque for many decades and a tireless champion of Manitoba’s film community and artists. Dave’s deep knowledge of cinema and warm manner made him an admired and well respected member of our community.
Over the past twenty years, Film Training Manitoba partnered on many major training activities with Dave and our team will miss him greatly.
