Jan Miller


Broadcast Date – May 16, 2018

What a lovely time I had sitting down for a chat with Jan Miller – if you’re business is film and television that’s a familiar name for sure – but Ms.Miller’s magic begins long before what you and I see on the big and small screens.  As the architect of international co-pro market Strategic Partners and Trans Atlantic Partners, the driving force behind Canada’s first film school, the National Screen Institute, and the founder of Women in Film and Television-Atlantic she’s had a hand in countless productions. Now as you might imagine – with that kind of resume – the lady never stops – in fact at this very moment she’s in France working the 71st Annual Cannes Film Festival – but a week or so ago Jan invited me to her spectacular spot near Peggy’s Cove with a jaw dropping backdrop on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.  Now for the record, it was a stormy day so you’ll every now and again you’ll hear the winds whistle and occasionally her dog Charlot breathing into the mic but you may not even notice it amidst the whirl wind of her wonderful works we’ll discuss and there’s plenty – so without further ado here’s my conversation with the one and only Jan Miller!
