“On behalf of the CMF, I would like to congratulate Stéphane Cardin on his move to Netflix, just announced today, where he will take on the role of Director of Public Policy for Canada. I am certain that the Canadian screen-based sector will continue to have in Stéphane a staunch ally and supporter and that in his new role, he will continue to be a champion of Canadian production.”
