INSINC Streams the 1998 Banff Television Festival

June 1998

The Banff Television Festival, the Cannes of Television, is a major event on the international television circuit: a week full of stimulating and informative seminars, stunning programmes and abundant networking opportunities. The June week in the Rockies designed to encourage, celebrate and promote excellence in television within Canada and around the world. It is also an opportunity to schmooze, make deals and rub elbows with the who’s who in television. 

INSINC, in conjunction with, proudly presented the exclusive netcast of the Conference. Through the commitment, expertise and endless energy of both the crew on the road and in the head office in Burnaby, the Conference was a roaring success. Notable moments included the opportunity to netcast the Honorable Sheila Copps, Minister of Canadian Heritage, announcing the creation of a $30-million Multimedia Fund, interviews with the likes of Laurier LaPierre and George Lucus’ Industrial Light and Magic Team, and of course, the opportunity to mingle with Bob Newhart, Tantoo Cardinal and “red Green” star, Michael Smith.
