Screen Nova Scotia awards nominees announced
Mr. D

Lights, camera, action! The nominees are in for the inaugural Screen Nova Scotia Awards Show. The show will take place Saturday, May 2 at Casino Nova Scotia. The event will be hosted by Jonathan Torrens, Canadian personality and sharer of my birthday.

“It has taken twenty years to build the depth of talent our membership enjoys today, and believe me, they are taking that talent to screens across the world,” says Jamie Bradley, President of ACTRA Maritimes in a press release. The event will be a huge celebration of all the Nova Scotian talent we’ve been seeing, and also a nice change from all the negative press of the NS Film Tax Credit.

"The past three weeks have been very challenging for the film and television industry in Nova Scotia, for reasons that everyone is well aware of," said Scott Simpson, vice chair of Screen Nova Scotia. “But let’s be clear about one thing – the quality of work that is done by people in this industry is second to none. We have much to be proud of and on Saturday night, we will celebrate some of the best film and television projects in Canada.”

The nominees were presented by Screen Nova Scotia, the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE).
