Billington Award Luncheon and Watch Canada Roundtable a Success!

By Uncategorized

The David Billington Award Luncheon and Watch Canada Roundtable held on Saturday October 27 were enjoyed by all that attended. The luncheon celebrated Tom Radford and his many contributions to media production in Alberta and Western Canada. Congratulations to Tom Radford and thank you to all his guests that came out to help celebrate. We are receiving many accolades from our guests, many of whom were touched by the event, and who were grateful they had the opportunity to come together to celebrate Tom.

Thank you to the Master of Ceremonies Peter Brown, Speakers Jim DeFelice, Ken Brown, Anne Wheeler, Peter Raymont, and Niobe Thompson for providing laughs and memories. A special ‘Thank You!’ to David Billington Award Producer Lisa Miller and also to editor Brenda Terning for the video tribute.

Thank you to our 2012 David Billington Award Luncheon Patron Sponsors GlobalShaw Media, and CTV; Bronze Sponsor CBC; Audio Visual Support Cine Audio Visual; and Dessert Sponsors Calgary Film Commission and Edmonton Film Commission.

More pictures of the toasting and roasting of Tom Radford can be found here.

The ‘Watch Canada’ Roundtable Discussion, which took place earlier in the day, was also a great success. With an enthusiastic audience of over 50 people, ranging from students to experienced producers, the event provided a fascinating insight into the many challenges facing Canadian content creators in connecting with audiences, both within Canada and abroad. Thanks to participants Valerie Creighton (CMF), Dave Forget (Telefilm Canada), Michael Hennessy (CMPA), J. Joly (Overinteractive Media) and Neil Campbell (Landmark Cinemas).  Video and powerpoint presentations from the event can be found here.

Thank you to our Watch Canada Roundtable Sponsors Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada and Alberta Film.
