Nancy Florence Savard, prize winner Communication Femme de Mérite
At last night’s 6th annual “Gala Bénéfice Femme de Mérite”, held in a crowded ballroom at Quebec’s Château Frontenac, producer/director Nancy Savard was given the 2004 award in the communications category.
“I am deeply honoured by this prize, which I share with my valued collaborators – all the technicians and artists, as well as the film and television professionals who have contributed to the success of 10th Ave Productions. Quebec is such an extraordinary, inspiring city, and talented artists are so numerous here that my passion for my work is renewed day after day as I discover remarkable people whose talent and hard work deserve exposure on the international market. And you’ll surely agree that such exposure becomes possible in fascinating media like television and cinema.”
The “Gala Bénéfice Femme de Mérite” is the most important fundraising event for the Quebec City Women’s Y. This award ceremony honours exceptional, innovative women and serves as an inspiration for the women of tomorrow.
Nancy Florence Savard is the president of 10th Ave Productions, an enterprise specialized in animation, television, and cinema, as well as of 10th Ave Editions, a publication company which develops educational computer games for use in multimedia.
