Dear members of ACTRA Maritimes,

What an intense time this has been for our branch and our industry.  In just over a week we will come together along with other member organizations of Screen Nova Scotia to celebrate and applaud the work of our members as we announce the 2015 ACTRA Maritimes Award winners.

This event has been in the works for many months and the idea of joining forces with our sister organizations to celebrate the work behind, as well as in front of the camera, was ideal.  In light of recent uncertainty with the Nova Scotia Film Tax Credit, our event has gained a great deal of momentum and importance.  The venue originally booked for our Awards Night would have been suitable for all ages; but, due to demand over the last couple of weeks, we had to change to a much larger venue.  This has left ACTRA Maritimes in the unfortunate position of having to exclude some of its members; namely, those under the legal drinking age of 19.

“This is a direct result of the momentum of our campaign by members and supporters to help save the Nova Scotia film, television and digital industry,” said Awards Chair, Geneviève Steele,  “It is not intended to be precedent-setting and we remain aware of the importance our youth members are to the union.  They are the future of our industry and we are sorry they can not attend this year’s Screen Nova Scotia event.”

Of all the organizations that fall under the Screen Nova Scotia banner, ACTRA is the only one with members under the age of 19.  Plans are afoot to acknowledge the work of our young members at the AGM scheduled for May 3rd, the day after the Screen NS Awards Show.

In Solidarity,

Jamie Bradley
President, ACTRA Maritimes
