For their 30th annivesary issue, Reel West Magazine is celebrating how the west was won with a look at the movies and TV shows that made the western Canadian industry real – and they want your help.
Which films and TV shows had the greatest impact on the western Canadian industry? Which launched careers or studios or locations or… fill in the blank.
This isn’t a “best of” or a “critic’s choice” list – they’re looking for productions that had a lasting impact. Productions can be 100% made in western Canada or they might be Hollywood hits.
TV shows will likely focus on series BUT if there’s a one-off TV movie or special or live event that had an impact on the industry, make a case for it. Hit them with your top ten lists – or just make a case for the one production you think matters or mattered most.
All nominations will be reviewed by an industry advisory panel who will determine which 30 movies and which 30 shows will be featured in the anniversary issue, which hits newstands and appears online in March.
By midnight February 9, send email nominations, post to their Facebook page, or Tweet at them. Include your name and contact info so they can quote you or let them know if you’d prefer not to be quoted.
