Film Training Manitoba (FTM) will be partnering with the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology (MITT) to conduct a two-day introduction to editing course in July 2021 for MITT students.
In recent years, FTM has expanded the organization’s training to integrated learning with Manitoba’s secondary and post-secondary schools. FTM and MITT developed the cutting-edge ACTION! 2.0 Program where students receive required film industry training and job coaching toward jobs and careers in Manitoba’s film industry.
“FTM is part of the Province of Manitoba’s dynamic Sector Council Program (SCP) which supports Manitoba’s growth in building a highly-skilled and competitive workforce.” Said FTM’s Managing Director Adam Smoluk. “Our partnership to train these students would not have been possible without the critical support of the SCP and FTM appreciates a continued great working relationship with MITT.”
During the FTM and MITT editing course, the students will be working on projects to highlight and showcase Manitoba – from landscapes to architecture with the theme of the promotion of tourism for Manitoba.
“We’re excited to have the Film Training Manitoba team supporting our learners as they develop travelogue-style videos about Manitoba, in English, as part of their five-week Explore program with MITT,” said Michelle Romuld, Manager, English Language Institute. “We appreciate the support of Adam Smoluk and the team and we’re grateful to find another opportunity for a MITT-FTM collaboration.”
FTM is a member of the Province of Manitoba’s sector council program funded through the Department of Economic Development and Training. FTM builds a highly skilled and adaptable film industry workforce to support the activities of Manitoba production companies. FTM collaborates and partners with members of the film and television industry to identify training needs to support workforce development output.
