Cinematoba, a partnership between The Winnipeg Foundation and the National Screen Institute, is an initiative focused on supporting local filmmakers as they share stories of local generosity from across Manitoba. The goal of the program is for all Manitobans to discover what generosity looks like in our province and was originally planned as part of The Foundation’s 2021 centennial celebrations but was delayed to 2022-2023 due to COVID.
