THE NORTHERN ONTARIO MUSIC AND FILM AWARDS
May 27th, 2017 will mark the 11th Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards (NOMFA), the second edition to be held on a biennial basis. In 2008, MFM launched the conference component in conjunction with the awards programming to help facilitate growth in the music, film, and television industries in Northern Ontario. Mentors and panelists are brought in to provide guidance and insight into the inner workings of each sector; many working relationships have been established through connections made at NOMFA.
NOMFA – WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Even if you didn’t submit to #NOMFA2017, you should still plan on attending the various showcases, workshops and panel sessions. This year, we've got a GREEN SCREEN WORKSHOP, ARTIST ENTREPRENEUR BOOTCAMP and much, much more! In addition to the many opportunities that await you personally, your participation adds to the growth, development and success of music and film in the North. This is our opportunity to not only showcase our talents together but also show the music and film communities at large the wealth of talent to be found here in Northern Ontario.
MEET THE NOMFA CEREMONY HOST
Dave Atkinson was born in a hospital, raised by humans and educated by disinterested Catholics in Marathon, Ontario, a mining and pulp town once described as “there” by many geographers. After graduating high school he stowed away on a CN boxcar and made his way to the city where he did a whole bunch of book learnin' and started telling jokes to strangers in basements. There were also stints at a national park, gold mine, and lumber yard in there somewhere. He has also been in some plays and published some short stories and started eating salad. His Dad is, to say the least, confused.
