This afternoon, the movie’s cast and crew, as well as the sponsors of the evening’s screening, will be the special guests of the Honourable Andrew Scheer, Speaker of the House of Commons, who will greet them following Question Period. Corner Gas: The Movie opens nationwide on December 3.

“We continue to foster Canadian cultural success, both at home and abroad,” said Michel Roy, Chair of the Board of Telefilm Canada. “Canada’s audiovisual industry and creative talent benefit from solid support from the public and private sectors. Indeed, the number of industry partners, in both production and promotion, is rising. This will enable us to continue to effectively seek out new audiences for Canadian talent.”

Carolle Brabant, Telefilm’s Executive Director, added: “The Canadian audiovisual industry wants to be recognized as a major supplier of independent audiovisual products—and is becoming increasingly successful in this regard. Congratulations to the industry’s very talented artists and craftspeople, and thank you to all the public- and private-sector partners that contribute to the industry’s boom. Our collective challenge is to continue along this path and ensure that Canadian stories are available and showcased on all platforms possible.”
