President's Message

I’m excited. I’m excited to step into the shoes left by the incredible presidents before me. I’m excited by the incredible year Newfoundland and Labrador had in 2021 with a record number of series, films, commercials, and opportunities for our members and the industry as a whole. I’m excited to see how that momentum will continue to build in 2022, how our membership will continue to grow, how work will continue to flourish, and how we will all continue to develop as cinema, television, and radio artists.
