WINNIPEG, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - MTS is pleased to announce that it will
be the exclusive distributor of the locally produced documentary,

"White Noise" will premiere on MTS Winnipeg on Demand on Sunday,
October 2, 2011. All Winnipeg on Demand content is available free of

"The return of the Winnipeg Jets has been the news story of the year and
we are proud to support a documentary that will showcase the history
behind the team," said Stan Kurtas, Vice President, Marketing, MTS.
"Winnipeg on Demand is a one-stop-shop for locally produced
documentaries of all genres and helps to profile community producers in
Over the last eight months, director Randy Frykas and producer Jeff
Newman captured the struggle and spirit of those who fought for the
return of NHL hockey to Winnipeg.
"We started making this documentary in February, several months before
the return of the Jets was announced. It wasn't supposed to be a story
about the Jets coming back - that just happened, and we were there to
follow it," said Newman. "It was supposed to be about a community that
wouldn't give up the idea that its team would come back."
"White Noise" will also be shown as part of Culture Days 2011 at a free,
family-friendly screening on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. The
big screen premiere at 201 Portage Avenue will take place mere steps
from historic Portage & Main, the scene of many Winnipeg Jet rallies,
player contract signings, and celebrations.
