As a partner of choice, Telefilm Canada is committed to developing, encouraging and promoting homegrown creators and talent.
We’re continuing our work focused on diversity and inclusion, two great Canadian assets. We’re encouraging the next generation to dare to make their first feature films, Indigenous filmmakers are now receiving more support and, with industry backing, we’re mobilizing our efforts to achieve our common goal of gender parity. We’re confident that voices from the various communities will energize this rich cultural heritage.
Thank you and congratulations to all those who bring our diversity to the screen. I would also like to thank each of you for supporting the International Festival of Films on Art. Thanks to this festival and to you, our filmmakers are taking their rightful place.
Continue to watch homegrown films wherever they’re available.
Enjoy the festival!
Executive Director, Telefilm Canada
