ACTRA Manitoba Awards Gala

Dear Members: I want to take this opportunity to congratulate all those Members who picked up an ACTRA Award on Friday, October 12.  And, I congratulate all those who were nominated – an important recognition.  The event was hugely successful with an attendance of over 350 ACTRA Members, Crew Members and many friends and families and some noteworthy dignitaries, including Cathy Cox, Manitoba’s Minister of Culture, and Mayor Brian Bowman.  I also want to thank all those who worked so hard on the day and on the days and weeks before the event – your hard work became self-evident with such a wonderful award ceremony and party – maybe the best to date.

ACTRA Manitoba gave out seven performance awards and two industry awards.  The Wayne Nicklas Award was given to Phyllis Laing, CEO of Buffalo Gal Pictures, for her long-time and ongoing contributions to the industry, which has benefited ACTRA Members for years and hopefully for many more to come.  Our new Award, ACTRA’s MANITOBA Award was given to two productions from a short-list of seven – ‘Lovesick’ (Eagle Vision) and ‘Stegman Is Dead’ (Julijette Inc).  Both productions showcased our Manitoba Members in an exemplary way with Members in numerous, large and meaningful roles.  Congratulations go to Eagle Vision and Julijette. The other productions that were short-listed are: Candle Cove (Channel Zero), No End House (Channel Zero), Trench 11, Snowmance and Menorca.

We also took time in the Award Ceremony to recognize Carole Vivier, our beloved Film Commissioner and past recipient of the Wayne Nicklas Award.  Carole is soon to retire and we needed to publicly recognize the years of unwavering dedication she has brought to our industry – a great champion.  We thanked her and gave her a piece of beautiful original art by a Manitoba artist to remember us by.

The seven performance awards given to Members and all those nominated and all of the submissions that came in confirm how far we have come as an industry and a community, and how well ACTRA Manitoba Members are doing in this tumultuous, exciting and frustrating industry we love.  Again, congratulations to the seven award winners, listed below:
