From the May 9th, 2000 email announcement from Miki of Miridien Filmed Entertainment Inc. (formerly Isis Media Works, before their merger) before their trip to Cannes - "As one of 18,000 entrants competing for a handful of positions - we ended up being one of only TWO (2) project from Canada that were accepted at all!!! What a tremendous honour. Further, as though one weren't good enought, the feature we just completed principal photography on "Salvador's Deli" has already been scooped and will also be in Cannes, with Westar Entertainment as its foreign distributor!!!"

Congrats to Isis Media Works (now Miridien) !!! - Clair
