“The Diversity Committee received many great submissions from ACTRA members across Canada,” says Diversity Committee Chair, Jani Lauzon. “Tough decisions were made by the jury as it came down to the quality of script, feasibility of the project and the strength of the messaging.”
The projects will be completed by January 2015, and will be used by our union to spread a strong message to our members and our industry partners that “Diversity is our Strength”.
ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) is the national union of professional performers working in the English-language recorded media in Canada. ACTRA represents the interests of 22,000 members across Canada – the foundation of Canada’s highly acclaimed professional performing community.
