This award is named in honour and loving memory of Manitoba’s pioneering Black-filmmaker, Winston W. Moxam. Winston. Winston passed away in Winnipeg in April 2011 and it is due to his influence and contribution to filmmaking in the Prairies and throughout Canada that we are honoured to present this award for the best New Black Canadian short film in his name, thus allowing emerging Black filmmakers to shine and be recognized for their work.
