Well, this is now the second time I’ve won an award for my Lumaajuuq animation and missed the event! First was at the ImagineNATIVE festival in October, and now again at the Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatchewan. Lumaajuuq just won a Golden Sheaf award in the “Best Aboriginal” category at the Yorkton Film Festival.
Thanks so much to the animator I worked with on this film, Dan Gies of www.everyonediesfilms.com. Thanks also to my producers Debbie Brisebois of Inuit Broadcasting Corporation and Derek Mazur formerly of the National Film Board, who has since moved on to become the CEO of Nunavut Film.
