Filmmakers launch petition campaign in Saskatoon

Supporters of Saskatchewan’s film industry launched a petition campaign on Saturday in effort to have the provincial government introduce a new incentive program for filmmakers.

The government axed the Saskatchewan Film Employment Tax Credit (SFETC) in the budget released in March. 

Petitioners hope to gain enough signatures to sway the Wall government into creating a new incentive program.

“I have little kids, I own properties here, I, I, I can’t even conceive a future where I’m not making animation here in Sask,” said local animator Tim Tyler.

Premier Brad Wall has said his government would consider alternatives in the future.

“I’d really like to see government supporting culture in whatever way they can,” said film producer Sandhya Padmanabh.

The deadline for applications under the existing SFETC program was extended from March 31st to June 30th.

The petitions will be personally mailed to Brad Wall in mid-May.
