Before the awards were handed out, best director nominee Jeremy Podeswa — who won for “The Borgias” — described the Gemini bash as a favourite get-together for members of Canada’s tight TV industry.
He compared it to the Emmys, where he was nominated last year for his work on “The Pacific.”
“It feels like much more of a family kind of thing,” said Podeswa, who added he would be unable to attend this year because he would be in Ireland directing “Game of Thrones.”
“The Geminis have always been a place where I immediately felt comfortable and at home.”

The Gemini Awards culminate with the Sept. 7 gala on CBC-TV. Comedy superstar Russell Peters will host, with presenters set to include Catherine O’Hara, Alan Thicke, Hugh Dillon and Priestley.

PRESS RELEASE – The Office of Film and Television (QFTC) is pleased to announce the confirmation of a new American film in Quebec this summer. The independent feature The Words starring Bradley Cooper (Limitless, Hangover, and soon Hangover Two) and Jeremy Irons (Die Hard with a Vengeance, Eragon, The Borgias) begins its pre-production this week. Filming will begin on June 5 for a period of 25 days, and will take place entirely in Montreal where the city will serve as a backdrop to New York and Paris.

The QFTC began discussions in early 2010 with the Hollywood production company Animus Films. Negotiations continued during the summer with the preparation of several proposals digital filming locations. The Words The project gained momentum in November during the economic mission organized by the QFTC the AFM (American Film Market) in Santa Monica. Among the 15 companies that participated in the Quebec delegation, the executive producer Francois Sylvestre took the opportunity to meet producers.

Producers Jim Young and Tatiana Kelly and the authors / directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal (Tron Legacy) were invited by the QFTC last month to discover the proposed filming locations and meet with service providers and AQTIS. This trip has definitely convinced the team of financial and creative strengths of Quebec. A few days later the producers announced their final decision to shoot in Montreal. “We are delighted with the enthusiasm that Quebec continues to attract internationally. Visible interest from foreign producers for Quebec is the result of three years of work and concerted mobilization of all our members, “recounted Hans Fraikin, the national commissioner.

François Sylvestre, who works with Nathalie Brunet Omada agency, said he was “proud to have helped bring a film in Montreal independent U.S. copyright.” With already nearly $ 200 million in volume shoots confirmed for 2011 and more than 3000 jobs created or maintained, all indications are that 2011 will be another record year for foreign productions shot in Quebec in 2010 surpassing the previous record year, which reached a total $ 214 million in direct economic benefits.
