My Millennial Life is a Gold Medal winner in Documentary at the 2017 New York Festivals, Film & Television Awards.
Big thanks go out to the millennials — Hope, Meron, James, Emily, Kirsty, Tim and Mark — who gave their time and shared their stories, my producing partner Charlotte Engel (Rock Yenta Productions), and to production team who participated in the making of the film.
The film could not have been made without the generous support of our broadcaster TVO, Bell Fund, Rogers Documentary Fund, CMF, iChannel, and the Canadian Federal and Provincial Tax Credits.
On March 8th, My Millennial Life was announced as the 2017 CSA winner for Best Documentary Program! Producing partner, Charlotte Engel and I were thrilled to accept the award, and honoured that MML had been chosen by the Canadian Academy.
It was a fantastic evening. We sat with our friends from TVO, John Ferri and Linda Fong, and together had the opportunity to applaud many talented and deserving creators as they came on stage and accepted their awards.
We’d like to thank the millennials who appear in the documentary, the entire MML team, TVO, and everyone who contributed to making the project such a success.
