A Proud "Thank You"

At the Western Canada Film Showcase at Banff, Alberta, four of our programs, including several from the "Exploring Canadian Communities Series," were voted into the "Top Ten" of the "100 Most Highly Recommended Programs", by a committee of the leading educational film and video buyers from across Western Canada. This was at a marketing showcase where 32 major international distributors (we were the smallest one there) were showing thousands of the latest video program releases during a week of previewing.

Our one-hour television documentary "My Land is My Life"** was voted Third Best Program of the Showcase. (By comparison, National Geographic placed 2 programs in the Top Ten, the NFB one, and CBC and TVO none.) Surprised organizers informed us that no producer or distributor had ever placed that many programs into the Top Ten before.

**The film also won a "Best Film" Golden Sheaf at Yorkton, at Canada's oldest international film and television festival.
