This week, 17 Nova Scotian delegates attended the BANFF World Media Festival, which bring top leaders from across the evolving media landscape to the heart of the Canadian Rockies for a totally unique experience. Attracting over 200 Development Executives and a wide-ranging cross-section of television and digital media professionals from around the world, BANFF was the ideal place to make new contacts, find production partners and green-light new projects. Screen Nova Scotia was happy to be on hand to help promote our competitive incentives, top-level production partners, unique locations, and skilled crew, talent and service suppliers.

A big congratulations to Screen Nova Scotia member Teresa McInnes, whose short documentary MABEL won a Rockie Award in the Social & Investigative category. The Rockie Awards is BANFF’s flagship program celebrating excellence in television and digital content from around the world, with hundreds of television and digital programs competing for a coveted award each year.
