At last week’s SMPIA Multi-PlatFORUM event, two project teams, each comprised of one film/TV company representative and one interactive company representative, were selected by the jury to be part of SMPIA-led delegation to the Banff World Media Festival in June.
The competition was judged by Canadian Media Production Association President and former content executive Norm Bolen, Shaw Media digital production executive, Zach Feldberg, and convergent content business analyst, Sasha Boersma.
The winning teams were:
- CollegeMobile & Wapos Bay Productions – “Wapos Bay: Self Improvement”
- T3 Digital Productions & Karma Film – “Your Lupine Life”
SMPIA will be shining a spotlight on Saskatchewan interactive and traditional media partnerships at the Banff World Media Festival June 10-13th, 2012 thanks to a Culture on Go: Market Access Grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Members of the official delegation will join SMPIA to showcase their works as well as meet with creators and investors as part of the official Banff Festival program.
SMPIA (Saskatchewan Media Production Industry Association) is a provincial, member-based non-profit organization that is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Established in 1985, SMPIA acts as an advocate for all personnel related to the making and exhibiting of film, video and interactive media, from beginners to professionals. SMPIA’s job is to be a catalyst for change, to facilitate interaction between people working in these media, and to help to create an environment that provides opportunities for the production, promotion and appreciation of media production in Saskatchewan.
