MONTREAL, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - At the latest Animae Caribe 2011, the Caribbean's main animation festival, the festival's Director Camille Selvon-Abrahams honored Joan Vogelesang, President and CEO of Toon Boom Animation, with an Award for her support throughout the years. In addition, the Minister Stephen Cadiz, Minister of Trade and Industry, Trinidad and Tobago, honored Joan Vogelesang with another Award in recognition of her sterling contribution to the animation industry of Trinidad and Tobago over the last ten years.  

"As the Caribbean islands look to diversify their economies, we felt that developing a creative industry building upon their rich folklore would be a perfect fit. The local talent and mixed cultures will make up a great pool of inspiration and development," shared Joan Vogelesang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom.
