NFB site wins CNMA

Beating out the multi-million dollar CBC news and the Ottawa Citizen (hmmm, there’s a joke in there somewhere) the NFB’s super cool Filmmaker-in-Residence site won a Canadian New Media award Monday night in Toronto.

A Vancouver film maker I know says he saw a demo of the site while in Toronto for the Hot Docs film festival, and the NFBer showing the site mentioned simply that it was done by ‘somebody from Vancouver’.

Those somebody’s are all vets of the now defunct (and much missed) CBC Radio 3 Magazine, which may explain why its sooooo damn hot, and proving once again that Vancouver harbours some of the best Flash brains around.

Congrats guys, you know who you are, and I for one am super proud of you work (again).
