Remembering Jaimz Asmundson

We're deeply saddened to hear of Jaimz Asmundson's passing. Jaimz has been a cornerstone of the local music and film scenes, a visionary and champion of the arts who lifted others up and worked tirelessly to support and promote independent artists, in addition to creating some incredible music through Ghost Twin with his wife Karen. His name has always been one we were excited to see in our inboxes because it meant he had an awesome idea to share. Sending so much love out to Karen and all his family, friends, everyone at Cinematheque and the Winnipeg Film Group, and his music and film communities.
