OTTAWA, Sept. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - I am delighted that the feature film Gabrielle, directed by Louise Archambault and produced by Luc Déry and Kim McCraw
of micro_scope, has been chosen as Canada's candidate for a nomination
in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 86th Academy Awards. The film received funding through Telefilm Canada's
Canada Feature Film Fund, which supports the development and production
of feature films that have the potential for success in Canada and
Canadians can be proud that artists from our country are distinguishing
themselves on the world stage and strengthening our reputation for
cinematic excellence. Canada's filmmakers have experienced much success
in recent years, and our country's official candidate for Best Foreign
Language Film has gone on to receive a nomination in this category
three years running.
On behalf of the Government of Canada and of all Canadians, I wish the
team behind Gabrielle the best of luck as the film seeks to become the fourth Canadian
production in a row to join the shortlist of nominees for Best Foreign
Language Film. I would also like to commend everyone who took part in
the Canadian Oscar selection committee's process.
