Member Initiated Productions
The MIP Program is designed to stimulate the desire of ACTRA members to come together and create original works of art without requiring the financial resources to pay established daily fees to performers. It is also intended to encourage ACTRA members to develop their skills as actors, and in other key creative areas.
Under this Program, the role of the ‘producer’ is played by the partnership that is created by the members who come together. ACTRA’s role – through ACTRA PRS – is to represent performers’ interests in the commercial exploitation of the project in the marketplace.
The Member Initiated Production Award, or “Golden Boy Award” (Member Choice Award), is presented annually at the MIP Showcase by ACTRA Manitoba to the “Most Outstanding MIP” Member-Producer(s).
