Arrival - Winners' acceptance speech, Sound, EE British Academy Film Awards in 2017

12 February 2017

Winners' acceptance speech by Claude La Haye, Bernard Gariepy Strobl and Sylvain Bellemare for Arrival in the Sound category

BERNARD GARIEPY STROBL: Wow. This is such an honour, such an honour. Thank you so much to everyone.

The story of the sound of Arrival is a little bit typical. Like a film, it ended up being an international collaboration and headed by our wonderful Montreal team.

First of all, thank you to the producers, Dan Levine, Aaron Ryder and Michael Jackman, just to name a few, and that followed Denis to Montreal to follow him home.

SYLVAIN BELLEMARE: At the end, we have to talk about communication, because this is all about the film, and someone came with a new language, Denis Villeneuve, [french spoken].

Your joy and your cinematic vision opens time for us.

Thank you.
