Winnipeg Students’ Short Film to Air on CBC

By David Klassen

Recent graduates of the University of Winnipeg’s film program will have their work aired on the CBC tonight.

Reiner Bello-Sanchez and Morgan Fics created “Roof Jumpers,” which was selected out of a handful of submissions to represent Manitoba on a national level.

“The significance of having our film on CBC is great. Beside being selected as one of the best films from all over Canada, and being broadcasted nationally, it also represents an opportunity to get our name and filmmaking skills recognized from coast to coast,” said Bello-Sanchez, who graduated in 2009 and will begin a Master of Fine Arts at York University this fall. “It also gave me the opportunity to meet some very talented filmmakers and producers.”

The film will air during the “Short Film Face-Off” beginning at 7 p.m.
