Along with my partners in Atlantis Films, Michael MacMillan and Seaton McLean, we'd like to thank the Academy. This means a lot to us. "Boys and Girls" was a labor of love and we'd like to thank the director Don McBrearty for putting that love on the screen. Also to Alice Munro, writer of the original short story; Joe Wiesenfeld, for the script; Alar Kivilo, cinematographer; Louis Natale, composer of the music; a fantastic cast led by Megan Follows and Ian Heath. For their continuing support and participation, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and in particular Roman Melnick and Nada Harcourt. To Telefilm Canada, thank you. To Magic Lantern. To...this is for Rose and Cindy and for our family and friends who are watching across Canada. Thank you very much. Thank you, Academy.
