Banff World Media Festival June 2017

July 21, 2017

Earlier this year, our Edmonton office was engaged by the City of Edmonton to help recruit the inaugural Board of Directors for the Edmonton Screen Industries Office (ESIO). The ESIO is tasked with achieving the goal of fostering Edmonton’s potential as a national and international centre of excellence in storytelling, creativity, innovation, collaboration and production. In working towards this goal, the ESIO will provide industry advocacy and leadership, advance local production projects and work to develop a sustainable competitive advantage supporting a growing Edmonton screen industry sector and diversification of the local economy.

The Banff World Media Festival in June provided an amazing opportunity for the ESIO to meet, and connect with representatives from around the world in TV, film and interactive media industries. Pictured above are Michael Jorgensen, Board Chair of the Alberta Media Production Industries Association (AMPIA), Carman McNary, Board Chair of ESIO and Rick Vogel from our Edmonton office.
