Two Film Training Manitoba Team Members Featured on Billboards for RRC Polytech’s Proud Campaign

Red River College Polytechnic launched its Polytechnic Proud Campaign at the beginning of April 2024. This campaign highlights graduates from RRC Polytech by putting up billboards around Winnipeg, Portage La Prairie, and Selkirk.

Film Training Manitoba’s (FTM) Senior Projects Manager Fawnda Neckoway and FTM’s Communications and Outreach Coordinator Jenna Paterson-Coutts are featured on billboards for this campaign. Fawnda Neckoway’s company Nikâwiy Productions was selected.

“It’s a great honour to have two of our team featured on these billboards. We are thrilled to have our team involved in this campaign.” Said FTM’s Executive Director Adam Smoluk. “We can’t wait to go see their billboards.”

You can find Fawnda’s billboard at Smith and Graham Street, and Jenna’s billboard at the north side of Marion Street at Youville Street.
