Adam Beach Film Institute selected as one of 20 finalists in the MTS Future First Grant

We are so pleased that your organization has been selected to be one of the 20 finalists in the MTS Future First grants selection process.

The voting campaign will begin on Tuesday, April 21 and will run until Sunday, May 10th.  We will be encouraging Manitobans to visit our website at to cast their votes for their favourite youth-serving initiative. 

To help you encourage your network of supporters to vote, in the next week, we will be providing you with a helpful promotional “toolkit” that contains logos, online banners, social media ads and suggested email content.      

We will also be profiling all 20 organizations on MTS social media and on our website throughout voting campaign.  To help us do this, we have a bit of an assignment for you…

We’d like you to prepare a brief video clip that outlines your program and explains what an MTS Future First grant would mean for the program.  We understand that technical abilities are by no means a standardized skill set, so want to keep this as simple as possible.  Shoot it on a cell phone or tablet, keep it brief – no more than two minutes long.  Then, upload it to a video sharing site such as YouTube or Vimeo, and send us the link before Friday April 17th.  We’ll get them up on our website and we can work together to cross promote them on social media. 

If you don’t have access to a video camera, we’d be happy to lend you an iPad.
The final 10 grant recipients will be revealed on Tuesday, May 12th, Manitoba Day!
Once again, congratulations, good luck and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
