BC Film and Television Productions Reach New Heights in REEL Thanksgiving Fundraiser
BC Film and Television productions across the city have banded together and raised a record breaking $63,652.40 in combined food and funds for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Praise indeed! Aart Schuurman Hess of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank made the following comment in a recent press release about the Reel Thanksgiving Food Bank Challenge. “Thanks to the spirit and generous efforts of the BC Film and Television industry, we have a tremendous boost in purchasing healthier, nutritious food to share with the community as we head into the busy holiday season. We are blown away by the support, commitment and intensity of the many amazing productions filming in BC and their supporters.”
This is almost $10K more than 2013 for our local industry! Also the BC motion picture industry will be sending the REEL Thanksgiving Challenge out to Toronto to get their local industry on board. This is a great example of a positive social endeavor that the whole industry gets behind. Amazing work everyone!
