Halifax, NS - Eastlink announced today that the Nova Scotia-headquartered company will contribute $690,000 to the local certified independent production fund administered by the Nova Scotia Independent Production Fund, in support of Nova Scotia’s TV production industry.
“As a company proudly rooted in Nova Scotia, we look for ways that we can make meaningful investments back into the local economy and encourage continued growth in our home province,” said Lee Bragg, Eastlink CEO. “We were pleased to learn this summer that the Nova Scotia Independent Production Fund was officially certified by the CRTC; we look forward to seeing what local projects will benefit as a result.”
Eastlink has contributed $3.9 million over the last 6 years to a local Independent Production Fund in Nova Scotia, which has provided opportunities for local producers and filmmakers to do what they love doing right here in Nova Scotia, including past examples such as “The Book of Negroes”.
“This investment is welcome news,” said Minister of Business, Mark Furey. “Eastlink’s contribution will benefit private-sector businesses in Nova Scotia’s film and television community and help create jobs and economic growth in Nova Scotia.”
