MONTREAL, Jan. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Telefilm Canada's Board of Directors would like to thank the outgoing Executive Director, Wayne Clarkson, whose term ended today.

"As the industry is aware, our Management Committee is made up of experienced, competent managers who represent all sectors of the organization - ensuring that Telefilm's activities continue in a seamless way until a new Executive Director is named," said Michel Roy, Chair of Telefilm Canada.
