(Halifax, March 24, 2014) The 2014 WAVE Awards were announced yesterday, capping the fourth annual Women Making Waves, a three-day conference marked by compelling speakers, dynamic panels and informative workshops.

Honouring outstanding contributions by women in film, television and digital media in the Atlantic Region, the one-of-a-kind awards went to Newfoundland and Labrador’s Noreen Golfman and Barbara Doran, and Nova Scotia’s Linda Wood.

“Each of these winners is unique and wonderful, and all of them loved the fact that the WAVE Awards have no categories – they simply honour women who deserve to be celebrated,” said Jan Miller, Chair of host organization Women in Film & Television-Atlantic (WIFT-AT).

“That fact allows the selection committee to make choices that truly celebrate women making a difference in the screen industry – in a multitude of fabulous ways.”

About the winners:

- Noreen Golfman has been described as a “powerhouse of poise, confidence and witty charm.” The Dean of graduate studies at Memorial University, Golfman has played an integral role in building a cultural community in Newfoundland and Labrador. She was involved in the founding of the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival 25 years ago, is Vice-Chair of the Newfoundland and Labrador Film Development Corporation, and founded the MUN Cinema Series, among other contributions to the industry.

- Linda Wood, the Director of Business & Legal Affairs at Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, has worked with virtually every producer in this province. A champion of Nova Scotia’s film, television and new media industry, Wood spent 11 years as a juror for the CBC/Film Nova Scotia Bridge Award and played an active role in the creation of the First Feature Project. While her name may not appear in the production credits, it’s a fixture in the “special thanks” sections of local film and television productions.

- Barbara Doran has been producing and directing films for more than 30 years. With incredible energy, she has devoted herself to the history, culture and future of Newfoundland, while exploring stories around the globe. Her documentaries have covered the sweatshops of Guatemala, women prisoners in Pakistan, AIDS workers in Africa, and romance writers in the U.S. Her Gemini Award-winning miniseries, Random Passage, played to record audiences on CBC Television, and her newest feature, The Grand Seduction, was nominated as best feature at the Canadian Screen Awards.

Other Women Making Waves highlights included a conversation Sunday morning with Melissa Silverstein, a Brooklyn-based media consultant and writer whose blog, Women and Hollywood, one of the most respected sites for issues related to women in film as well as other areas of pop culture. Additional sessions included award-winning director, editor, writer Wiebke von Carolsfeld; transmedia leader Caitlin Burns; Sundance doc winner Jennifer Fox on crowd-funding; a hit sci-fi series panel (Emily Andras of Lost Girl, Daegan Fryklind of Bitten and Shawn Piller of Haven); film stunts with Shelley Cook; and a conversation with the remarkable team behind Bomb Girls, Adrienne Mitchell and Janis Lundman.

Women Making Waves takes place at the University of King’s College, NSCAD University, and the historic Lord Nelson Hotel. WIFT-AT gratefully recognizes the support of Telefilm Canada, Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, 902 Post, BMO Nesbitt Burns, ACTRA, the Canadian Media Production Association, the St. John’s Women’s Film Festival and Ruby Tree Films, as well as an array of industry sponsors.

Angie Kokic, Lisa Rose Snow and Louise Lalonde are winners of the Wave Awards for 2013.

Wave Award winners 20131 350x233 Angie Kokic, Lisa Rose Snow and Louise Lalonde are winners of the Wave Awards for 2013. A big warm congratulations to Angie Kokic, Lisa Rose Snow and Louise Lalonde – winners of the Wave Awards for 2013. 

The WAVE Awards were presented today (Sunday, March 17, 2013) at Le Bistro during Women Making Waves, the third annual Women in Film and Television-Atlantic conference.

The awards recognize the “significant impact, extensive reach, and high-quality contribution to the Atlantic Canadian screen industry.”

“These three women are a terrific example of how women impact the field in diverse ways,” said Anita Reilly McGee, co-chair with Andrea Levesque of Women Making Waves 2013. “The Wave Awards are unique in that there are no categories – we are saluting women for their talents, their achievements, and their support of the industry.”

About the winners:

- Lisa Rose Snow is an emerging actor, writer, and producer in Halifax. Her Forerunners Playwrights’ Theatre has premiered many Canadian plays; she has appeared on screen in Seed, Call Me Fitz, All The Wrong Reasons and Everyone’s Famous; and she will soon be directing her screenplay, Two Penny Road Kill, under AFCOOP’s Film 5 program. A creator of Organic Water Productions, Lisa recently shadow-directed Thom Fitzgerald on Forgive Me, his new TV show. Follow her at twitter.com/lisarosesnow

- Louise Lalonde’s experience in film production ranges from craft services to directing, but screenwriting is her passion – she currently has five feature-length scripts in development. The PEI resident is well known for her five-day intensive screenwriting workshop, Screenwriters’ Bootcamp, which is funded by various organizations and provided free to participants. Louise’s work is witnessed in the many filmmakers she has nurtured who are bringing their work to Canada and the world.

- Angie Kokic is a key component of many productions throughout Halifax, bringing with her boundless energy, a positive attitude and many resources. Her accounting expertise is valued by those working their way through the labyrinth of the Canadian film finance system. Based in Halifax, Angie’s industry contacts include producers, financing agencies, unions, suppliers, banks and crew – and her creative support goes way beyond the confines of a spreadsheet.

“This is incredible,” Snow told a packed house at the WAVE Awards brunch at Le Bistro in Halifax on Sunday. “It’s amazing to live in a place where there is so much support and so much help from the women – and men – in the field.”

“I work with terrific people. It’s a pleasure to go to work every day,” Kokic added.

Lalonde said that despite the industry’s challenges, it’s wonderful to “get to be part of a group like this – who are inspiring, passionate, and just keep going – and accolades!”

Thanks to all who attended our wonderful brunch and awards event during our third Women Making Waves conference! And again, a big cheer and thank you to our winners.

423229 367557693265342 2040402631 n 350x328 Jan 14: Women Making Waves gears up for 3rd annual event; seeks nominations for outstanding women for Wave Awards

Women in Film and Television – Atlantic (WIFT-AT) presents Women Making Waves March 15-17 in Halifax.

Whether an established vet, an emerging auteur, or a student discovering their love of the art via the ‘Independent’ category on Netflix, Women Making Waves will excite, illuminate, provoke and inspire.

“After two very successful gatherings, the momentum is building for our 3rd annual Women Making Waves,” says producer Anita Reilly McGee, co-chair of the event with DGC’s Andrea Levesque.

“It’s developed a reputation as a place to make new connections and catch up with old comrades – a gathering where you’re sure to learn something new and gain inspiration to move forward in your current work or perhaps explore new frontiers.”

The Wave Awards, honouring women in the screen industry in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador and Prince Edward Island, are a key ingredient of the event. Nominations are now open; deadline is Tuesday, Feb. 5 and nominations can be submitted by any member of the public by e-mailing awards.wift.at@gmail.com

“The Wave Awards are all about recognizing noteworthy women in the field,” says Levesque. “There are no categories – the goal is to salute women for their remarkable contributions, accomplishments, emerging talent, vision, leadership, dedication and behind-the-scenes support. She could be a producer, a set designer, a make-up artist or bookkeeper.”

The 2012 winners were award-winning producers Jennice Ripley and Sylvia Hamilton and internationally renowned consultant and trainer, Jan Miller. Honourees receive a beautifully designed award by silversmith Kristianne LeBreton.

“Winning the WIFT-AT Wave Award was such an honour. It was moving to hear the thoughtful words submitted by my peers for the nomination … and so fantastic to be in the company of such amazing contributors as the other award recipients,” says Ripley from St. John’s.

Women Making Waves takes place at the University of King’s College, featuring a diverse array of panels, workshops and networking opportunities. Reaching out to above-the-line (writers, directors, producers), below-the-line (crew, technicians, actors) and those blurring the lines through transmedia (interactive, mobile, multi-platform), it is open to men and women, from students to seasoned professionals.

Registration is now open, and discounts are available for early registrants and come-from-aways. For more information visit http://wift-at.com/wmw/

Women Making Waves is co-presented by the University of King’s College, and the Lord Nelson is the conference hotel. It is an annual conference held in March to coincide with International Women’s Day.

Women Making Waves welcomes the generous financial support of Telefilm Canada and Film Nova Scotia.

WIFT, an international organization with 37 chapters and more than 10,000 members, was founded in 1973. It is committed to advancement for women in professional development and achievement in film, video and other screen-based media. WIFT-AT was founded in March 2009 as part of the international movement.

Outstanding Atlantic Canadian women honoured during 2012 WAVE Awards for film, TV and digital media

(Halifax, March 11, 2011) Capping a weekend of compelling speakers, dynamic panels and informative workshops, Women Making Waves 2012 wrapped today with the presentation of the 2012 WAVE Awards, honouring outstanding contributions by women in the field.

 Jennice Ripley, Sylvia Hamilton and Jan Miller were announced as the WAVE Award winners during the second annual conference for women and men in film, television and new media.

“What’s unique about the WAVE Awards is that there are no categories. It’s about saluting women for their accomplishments, talents and behind-the-scenes support,” said Teri Anderson, Vice-Chair of the Atlantic Film Festival.

About the winners:

- Jennice Ripley has been a pillar of the Newfoundland and Labrador film industry for 25 years, a successful producer, respected community leader and a generous mentor. She has produced feature films, television drama, comedy series and documentaries. Her most recent feature film, Crackie, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

- Sylvia Hamilton is a multi-award-winning filmmaker, writer and educator who is known for her documentaries exploring the history, contributions and experience of African Canadians. Her newest film, The Little Black School House, unearths the story of the women, men and children who studied and taught at Canada’s racially segregated schools.

- Jan Miller is president of Lowenbe Holdings, Director of Strategic Partners – the co-production market of the Atlantic Film Festival – and Chair of Women in Film and Television-Atlantic. A fearless leader whose pitching workshops are sought globally, Jan is an exemplary role model and advocate for women’s rights … and her enthusiasm is absolutely contagious.

“I’m really quite touched and honoured. I didn’t realize how meaningful it would feel to be up here,” Ripley told a packed house at the WAVE Awards brunch at Ela! Greek Taverna in Halifax.

Other highlights included a talk this morning by Sheri Elwood, creator and showrunner of the award-winning series Call Me Fitz, cheekily subtitled How to Get Your Own Hit Television Series in Fifteen Years or Less. Elwood spoke about the need for determination in the industry.

“I had to make my own show to get a directing job. I’m just incredibly stubborn. The failures and the doors slammed were almost as important as the successes,” said Elwood, who recently inked a deal with Jerry Bruckheimer TV/Warner Bros.

A new initiative, The All-Access Award, was also announced today. It will be presented annually to a deserving female working in screen-based media, and is intended as a career booster. It includes a one-year membership in WIFT-AT, an all-access pass to each of the film festivals in the Atlantic region, accommodations and a meeting with a WIFT-AT representative during each of those festivals, and $750 toward travel expenses.

Hosted by Women in Film and Television-Atlantic, Women Making Waves attracted delegates from across the Atlantic region, all keen to hear from keynote speaker Kari Skogland (Fifty Dead Men Walking, The Borgias, Boardwalk Empire), and take part in her directing workshop.

They also came for a diverse array of panels, workshops and networking opportunities, including sessions on copyright, unions, building a multiplatform audience, an evening film screening, and For a Funny Time, Call … a women in comedy panel starring Cheryl Hann (Picnicface, Rollertown), Cathy Jones (22 Minutes), Nikki Payne (Single White Spenny), and Christine Taylor (The Juicy Danger Show), hosted by Nancy Regan.

“Seeing how much Women Making Waves has blossomed, in just one year, is amazing,” says event co-chair Ann Bernier. “Everywhere I looked, people were engaged in passionate conversations about their craft, and thrilled to be soaking up all of the knowledge and wisdom available at each of our sessions – not to mention having loads of laughs!”

The conference is co-presented with Mount Saint Vincent University. WIFT-AT also gratefully recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia through the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage Division, as well as Telefilm Canada and Film Nova Scotia, to name just a few.

WIFT, an international organization with 37 chapters and more than 10,000 members, was founded in 1973. It is committed to advancement for women in professional development and achievement in film, video and other screen-based media. Almost three years young, WIFT-AT is the Atlantic Canadian chapter of the international organization.

News Release: Call for Nominations for the 2012 Wave Awards

2012 WAVE Awards to honour outstanding Atlantic Canadian women in film, TV and new media

 

(Halifax, Jan. 16, 2012) The WAVE Awards, honouring women in the screen industry in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island, are now open for nominations. The deadline is Thursday, Feb. 2.

Introduced last year during the inaugural Women Making Waves conference, the WAVE Awards recognize noteworthy women in the industry.

“We are looking for remarkable nominees who have made an indelible mark on the screen industry – and the people it envelopes – in their own unique way,” says Jan Miller, co-chair with Ann Bernier of Women Making Waves 2012.

The WAVE Awards have no categories. The goal is to salute women in the region’s screen industry for their contributions, accomplishments, emerging talent, vision, leadership, dedication and tremendous behind-the-scenes support.

“Any woman in the industry, at any level, can be nominated: from directors to set designers, bookkeepers to producers, wardrobe assistants to volunteers,” says Miller, who is also Chair of Women in Film & Television-Atlantic, which hosts Women Making Waves.

Women Making Waves takes place March 9 through 11 in Halifax, featuring a diverse array of panels, workshops and networking opportunities. It is open to men and women, and nominations for the WAVE Awards can be submitted by any member of the public.

Last year’s winners were Cat LeBlanc, Member Services Director, New Brunswick Film Co-op; award-winning Halifax filmmaker Ann Verrall; PEI’s Cheryl Wagner, creator of The Big Comfy Couch and other children’s television programs; and Jean Smith, Executive Director, Newfoundland Independent Filmmakers Co-operative.

“I was particularly moved to receive an award for vision and accomplishment, because it honours an approach to working not just as a director, writer, producer, educator, community worker,” says Verrall. “For people who work outside the conventional job positions in the film industry, this award acknowledges the many ways artists create and contribute.”

The WAVE Awards will be presented at the Women Making Waves Awards Brunch on Sunday, March 11. For more information, visit http://wift-at.com/women-making-waves-the-wave-awards/. Nominations are due Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 and can be submitted by e-mail to awards.wift.at@gmail.com
