Local producer Angus Swantee has been awarded the CBC/Film Nova Scotia Bridge Award for his next project, a short called Game.

The script is by writer/director Josh MacDonald, a suspense thriller about a pursued woman. The short's executive producer will be Kimberlee McTaggart.

The Bridge Award exists to cultivate and grow the emerging talent in Nova Scotia by providing them with the opportunity to produce a program for broadcast in the Atlantic region. Swantee will receive $20,000 in equity funding from Film Nova Scotia and an equal amount in regional broadcast licences and services from CBC for Game.

Previous recipients include Rebecca Sharratt, Kevin Kincaid, Preston Hudson, Jeff Coll, Chris Pauley and Steve Richard.
