The Guelph Mercury reported on the weekend that after an internal competition someone has been selected to serve in the Film Liaison position vacated by Jennifer Peleschak earlier this fall.
For a while there, those of us in the local filmmaking community had some concern that the city was going to leave the position vacant. Of course, Film Liaison Officer wasn't Peleschak's official position in City Hall, it was something she took up when the City started getting inquiries about shooting films, TV projects and commercials in Guelph. Jen was uniquely qualified for the post because she genuinely loves film and was supportive of all productions, from big international projects like Blindness to local indies like Mind's Eye. So I happily welcome our new Film Liaison,
