Nathaniel Magbanua

Congratulations to Nathaniel Magbanua (CBC New Indigenous Voices), who was named one of Winnipeg Film Group’s (WFG) Manitoba Film and Music (MFM) First Film Fund recipients.

The WFG’s MFM First Film Fund is designed to assist aspiring filmmakers to make their first film. The fund supports narrative, experimental, documentary or hybrid genres. Winning projects are selected by a committee of experienced filmmakers and the WFG executive director.

Nathaniel was awarded $2K in cash and $2K in WFG services for his short film Taxi Night (working title).

In an article for The University of Winnipeg Nathaniel says the film is a “dark, surreal, experimental horror” about a young woman and her sinister cab driver.

Nathaniel was one of three recipients of the fund, including Maggie Collins and Nicole Loewen.
