Canada has quietly taken its place among the most interesting, important and active cinema producing countries today. As Carolle Brabant ♀, the new Executive Director of Telefilm Canada (since March 15, 2010), assumes leadership she is proud of the international recognition garnered by the Canadian film industry and its talents:

• 4 films were nominated for Academy Awards: Incendies for Best Foreign Language Film, and Barney’s Version in the Makeup category (Adrien Morot) is being sold worldwide by Essential ...and not to be outdone, Essential’s chief is Canadian John Fremes!
• Xavier Dolan has been nominated for the French Academy Award, the César, in the Best Foreign Film category for Les amours imaginaires (ISA: Rezo).
• In Sundance Canada was third in the number of films at the festival. After U.S. and U.K., Canada had 6 features and 8 shorts at the festival.
• In Rotterdam Canada has a decade high of 11 feature films screening, two projects selected to be featured at IFFR’s exclusive CineMart international coproduction market, 20 short films including four in the IFFR Tiger Awards Short Film competition, and three emerging producers participating in the prestigious Festival’s Rotterdam Lab training workshop.
• In Berlin, Canadian productions came home with three awards: Stephane Lafleur’s En terrains connus (Familiar Grounds), the Ecumenical Jury Award (Forum); Special Mention, Generation Kplus Children's Jury, to Mabul by Guy Nattiv (Israel, Canada); and a Special Mention, Generation Kplus International Jury, to the short film Dimache by Patrick Doyan.

• Canada has signed an impressive number of international treaties for coproduction with 52 co-production treaties with 49 countries

. Most of Canada’s co-productions are with only a few of these countries (France, U.K., Germany, Spain and Italy) the treaties include China, Japan and Singapore and others.

Carolle Brabant has been at Telefilm Canada 21 years. She started at Telefilm Canada in 1990 as an accountant implementing their audit program and soon became Director of Administration. As CEO since March 15, 2010, she is the first employee to be appointed from within. Telefilm Canada is active at international festivals and markets, from Cannes to the MIPS, from TIFF to Berlin, supporting the industry with business development initiatives or promotionals campaigns for talent and sales promotion. There is so much talent for such a small country, she cites Adam Egoyan, Denis Arcand, Sarah Polley, David Cronenberg, Sebastian Pilote, not to mention the Canadians who are totally integrated into the U.S. film and TV community.
