Hollywood Vet To Head Telefilm Canada

“Telefilm Canada will soon appoint former Torontonian Michael Jenkinson — a brainy entrepreneur who has spent the past 13 years in Hollywood’s hard-knocks production trenches — to become its new feature film executive for English Canada, sources say. While Montreal-based Telefilm would not confirm Jenkinson’s new posting, sources in the tight-knit entertainment community say the Jamaican-born film executive will take on this challenging job in mid-May. The federal funding agency annually doles out roughly $80-million to about 30 productions through its Canada Feature Film Fund.”
