Memorable Manitobans: Winston Washington Moxam (1963-2011)

Film maker.

Born at Birmingham, England on 7 August 1963, his family moved to Jamaica a few years later and eventually settled at Winnipeg. He graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 1987 with a BA in Anthropology/ Theatre and, in 1989, with a Film Production Diploma from Confederation College at Thunder Bay, Ontario. In the course of work as a director, producer, writer, and editor, he completed the films The Barbeque (1993), Barbara James (2003), and Billy (2010). He made several documentaries for the National Film Board of Canada and he served on juries for the Manitoba Arts Council, Canada Council Media Arts, and the Winnipeg Film Group. He was the Director-in-Residence at the Academy of Broadcasting Corporation, the Cultural Liaison Coordinator at Video Pool, and as an Assistant Editor at CBC, CTV and NFB. He died at Winnipeg on 13 April 2011, of complications following heart surgery.
