President's Message

As we wind down the year at ACTRA, I can't help but remark that my first full year as your President has seemingly flown by. Yet so much has happened that it's kind of a large task trying to sum it all up! 2022 started off very challenging. we were isolating again with our third wave of COVID, and it was a hard, cold winter. I definitely felt the SAD throughout February and March. But productions carried on, such as the popular Violent Night (in theatres now!), King of Killers, Little Bird, and Acting Good, just to name a couple of the MANY films and TV shows that shot early in the year. On behalf of the staff and council at ACTRA Manitoba, we wish you a joyful holiday season, and a happy new year.
