Current MA student Miles Crossman, based in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, has just won a film pitch prize at the Gimli festival. Miles and his partner Nicola Baldwin, pitched If it Ain’t Got, a swing dance short film about community and inclusion.

If it Ain’t Got will chronicle the experience of a 21-year-old Nigerian man’s discovery of swing dancing and its inclusive power of bringing people of all backgrounds together through dance.

Congratulations, Miles!
