Manitoba is 1 of the 10 provinces and territories in partnership with The 48 Film Festival (48FF) – this is also the headquarter location for the 48FF organization. The 48FF is handling all registrations, events and screenings for the province.
The 48 Film Festival is a not-for-profit, federally incorporated, Canadian arts support organization. We provide opportunities for networking, resource exchange and shared learning and host the inaugural Canada-wide 48 film challenge. If you are based in Manitoba and have questions or wish to participate, please contact us below.

The top two films from each province and territory will be selected to screen at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto in March 2022.
