Congratulations to 2022 Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Award winner James Phillips For the Romantic Comedy Film As Gouda As It Gets 

April 27, 2022 – Incendo is delighted to congratulate James Phillips on his 2022 WGC Award win for the TV-Movie, As Gouda As It Gets. The WGC Screenwriting Awards recognize and celebrate Canadian screenwriters and their scripts. Winners were announced at a virtual ceremony held on April 25th where James won the award in the MOW & Miniseries category. 

As Gouda As It Gets – Brie Belanger is the maître fromager and owner of Brie’s Cheese, a cute artisan cheese shop located in picturesque Vermont. Looking to boost her business presence and sales, the town’s annual Cheese Festival arrives just in time with a $50,000 first-place prize. Up against her biggest competitor, Brie’s vintage smoked gouda is considered a frontrunner-so much so that Jacob Wolfe, a former chef and influential cheese blogger, approaches about profiling her delectable creation, leading their friendship to take a turn for romance. Complications arise when Matt Lambert, the handsome and charismatic new CEO of Lambert Farms (and Brie’s largest competitor) starts to show his interest in acquiring her shop. Racing against the clock and a disastrous power failure, Brie and Jacob must recreate a prize-worthy entry if she has any hope of keeping her shop and potentially winning more than she initially hoped for. 

The film is available to stream on Citytv in Canada. To watch the official trailer please click here.
