"JOAN GOLDI Top Canadian Series Producer Nominee
Second Year in a Row, at New York Festivals

With a Bronze Worldmedal and 3 Finalists, Joan Goldi is the top Canadian award winning producer at New York Festivals.


We had earlier won THREE FINALIST NOMINATIONS at the NY Festival. One of them was  for "What an Ice Canoe!", one of two shows we did on the Québec Winter Carnival. (It was a Finalist in the same category as the mega budget "Hitman Hart")

Radio-Québec (Québec's counterpart to TVO) recently called about the other show we did,  "The Magic of Winter", to say:
"We have, of course, seen many, many programs done on Québec's Winter Carnival, but yours is by far the best we have ever seen.  It was wonderful, and easy to see that the people who made it have great affection for Québec and its people. Merci!"

***** We are pleased that "The Magic of Winter" has also just won a Bronze Plaque at Houston.
