2014 CANADIAN SCREEN AWARDS - NFB's Animation Nominations

As most of the Canadian folks who work in television will be aware, the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards Nominations have now been announced. For anyone not aware of the what the Canadian Screen Awards are, check out the handy break down from Wikipedia below.

The Canadian Screen Awards are awards given annually by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television recognizing excellence in Canadian film, television, and digital media productions. 
The new awards were first presented in 2013 as the result of a merger of the Canadian Academy's previous awards for Canadian television and film productions: the Gemini Awards and the Genie Awards respectively.

The NFB has had a fair number of their animations listed. In fact, all five of the 'Best Animated Short' nominations were produced by the NFB. Follow the link at the bottom of the page to read the NFB's full blog post about the nominations.
