The showcase is now online! Watch it at

It's going to be a party! Join us as we showcase 7 amazing
New Media freelancers and companies
on Wednesday,
March 28, 7 PM,
at IMAX Portage Place!

For those of you that have been following the success of Indie Game: The Movie, you'll recall that the producers; James and Lisanne, got their inspiration for the film after interviewing  one of our feature Manitoba game developers from our previous year's new media business showcase: Alec Holowka. Alec's segment (seen here) is one example of the format you'll see during this year's amazing celebration of new media in Manitoba presented in just one week!

This year's video production team super-extraordinaire is Handcraft Creative. They have been diligently interviewing, filming, and motion graphic'ing 7 new media companies ranging in fields from app development, to robotics, to game design and beyond for a special 45-min feature that will remind you why Manitoba has some of the most incredible creatives and developers in the world.

If you work in New Media, are a student of New Media, are married to New Media, or feed and clothe someone in New Media, you will not want to miss this event on March 28.

Wednesday, March 28, will also be your chance to get a little fancy and dig out your blue tuxedo or quasi formal wear. It's not often that we new media developers get to class it up a notch so break out your favourite flare for the evening's festivities!

Pre-register for Wednesday's event for just $15 and get $5 back at the door! Students that pre-register can show their student ID at the door and get $10 back! Price includes delicious food from Diversity and an awesome shaker following the film. 

Alcoholic (yes!) and non-alcoholic beverages are available at our specially imported IMAX cash bar. Parking is available for free underground at Portage Place (just bring us your ticket for validation) and the event begins at 7 PM

Hey look Ma, it's someone famous! Special dignitaries will be on hand that are interested in meeting you. Show our funders and your future investors you give a darn about this industry by showing up and introducing yourself!

If you're looking for a reason to celebrate what you and your comrades do - then register now! IMAX has limited seating available and we can only accommodate a finite amount of awesomeness in one space. :)  So bring your spouse, your partner, your folks, and even that kid down the street that's always giving you the stink-eye. Wednesday, March 28 is your night to show everyone that matters what you do!

Register now and I look forward to seeing you during the evening of March 28! :)
