On March 13, AMPIA and other members of the Alberta Screen Industries Action Committee (ASIAC) met with Alberta Culture and Tourism Minister Ricardo Miranda to discuss potential improvements to the Alberta Production Fund. At the meeting, AMPIA discussed the results of our Membership Survey. AMPIA encourages members interested in participating in the next Alberta Screen Industry Action Committee meeting to RSVP via email for the meeting at Calgary’s Hotel Blackfoot in the Macleod Room on Thursday, March 21 at 2:00 PM.

In addition to all the attendees and speakers, special thanks to the Government of Alberta, Alberta Film and the rest of our sponsors:
