TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2014 /CNW/ - I am very pleased to congratulate ACTRA
Toronto's award nominees and winners for 2014.
ACTRA Toronto pays tribute to the actors who play such an important role
in the success of the Canadian television, film and radio industry.
This year's nominees represent a wide range of outstanding Canadian
English audiovisual programming, which speaks to the vitality of the
sector and our culture.
R.H. Thomson received this year's Award of Excellence for his
exceptional body of work. Over the last 30 years, he has demonstrated
his abilities in many film, television and theatre roles. In 2010, Mr.
Thomson was awarded the Order of Canada.
I am very proud of everyone who has contributed to the success of our
audiovisual industry and pleased that our Government is supporting it.
Each year, we invest more than $600 million in this sector through
Telefilm Canada, the National Film Board, the Canada Council for the
Arts and tax credits.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, I would like to commend ACTRA on
the work it does to promote and celebrate artistic excellence.
