Freeze Frame is Manitoba’s media arts centre for young people. The centre offers educational and cultural media arts experiences to young people and hosts the annual Winnipeg International Film Festival for Kids of All Ages. Freeze Frame is a not-forprofit organization and registered Manitoba
charity, incorporated in 1996. Freeze Frame’s mandate is to provide educational opportunities for children and youth to develop media literacy, critical thinking skills, and the ability to express themselves through film and video—essential attributes in a world where communication through all media is becoming increasingly important and complex.
I has always thought my kid would be interested in playing sport. But when he didn't show an interest I wondered what he would get into. After working with Freeze Frame, he comes home, excited, and he is trying to explain to us what he filmed, edited... and we can't keep up with him. I haven't seen him that excited about anything before. He told me, if there was a program like this all summer, he'd be there every day.
