A WORD FROM OUR PARTNER
Bell Media is proud of its partnership with the Harold Greenberg Fund, which has enabled the creation of high-quality Canadian content for viewers both at home and abroad for the past 30 years.
The 2016-17 fiscal year was no exception as the Harold Greenberg Fund’s English and French-Language Programs (HGF) invested over $5.5 million in 158 projects, including the highly acclaimed films Stockholm, Meditation Park, Bon Cop, Bad Cop 2, De père en flic 2, and C’est le cœur qui meurt en dernier, among others.
We are particularly thrilled to see how well the work and talent of our exceptional artists was received and appreciated, as 15 of the productions backed by the HGF were featured at the latest Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), including the Sanchez Brothers’ A Worthy Companion. Further accolades came in the form of Canadian Screen awards, which this year honoured Tatiana Maslany for her compelling role in The Other Half, a romantic drama.
Soon, we will have the opportunity to see major productions that have received support from the HGF, including The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, Xavier Dolan’s first English-Language and star-studded feature, and The Breadwinner, an animated feature film based on an acclaimed Canadian novel by Deborah Ellis, executive produced by Angelina Jolie and directed by Academy Award nominee Nora Twomey. In the French-Language Program side, three major productions were supported by the HGF, including La course des tuques, the sequel to the cult movie La guerre des tuques; 1991, the last part to Ricardo Trogi’s trilogy which also includes 1981 and 1987; as well another breathtaking full length feature from Denys Arcand, Le triomphe de l’argent.
At Bell Media, we are dedicated to quality Canadian content. This is why we are proud to contribute to the Harold Greenberg Fund, which remains true to its mission of supporting the best Canadian productions.
