Fredericton – April 15, 2022 – The Jane LeBlanc Legacy Fund is growing with a generous financial contribution from the popular film screening series TIFF Film Circuit Saint John.

The gift will be in excess of $20,000 and enables the JL Legacy Fund to add a more significant financial value to one of its 12 creative awards. The Jane LeBlanc Film Post Award is the lucky recipient for the long-time cash infusion. With TIFF Film Circuit Saint John’s support, awarded New Brunswick filmmakers will be able to hire and pay New Brunswick resident post-production specialists to take their film projects to the next level.

“My mother and I are thrilled and thankful for this incredible gift our Legacy Fund will hold in trust long-term for the New Brunswick creative community.” Cat LeBlanc
