Film Training Manitoba (FTM) is saddened to learn of the recent passing of Danny Schur.
Danny was a multi-talented creative force, who excelled in film, theatre, and music. He was a dedicated advocate of Manitoba’s arts community and had supported FTM’s mission for many years as an advisor and friend. Danny honoured his roots by creating Strike! The Musical that was later adapted into the highly successful film version, Stand! This project told the story of Ukrainians and other Eastern European immigrants who became pivotal figures in Canada’s famous 1919 general strike.
Danny’s can-do attitude and love for his family and friends will be sadly missed. Details of Danny’s memorial service will be released soon.
