This story is developing (in that I don’t have absolutely all the information yet), but the Saskatchewan Government has announced the Creative Industries Agency – meant as a salve to those who make their living through the arts, and what I guess is supposed to be a bandage over the gaping wound inflicted on the local film industry following the axing of the Saskatchewan Film Employment Tax Credit last year.

In a nutshell, there’s less money to support all the “creative industries” in the province than there used to be to support SaskFilm alone.

Updates and reaction to follow.
