The movie 40 Below and Falling is a coming-of-age story of Kate, a teacher trying to return to civilization to get married after working in a remote, northern Canadian community. When a harsh storm stops all flight and road travel, Kate convinces a stranger named Redford to take the trip with her on a snowmobile.

"It's an amazing honour, and to be honest, a complete surprise," Scholotiuk told CBC's radio show Edmonton AM on Friday. "To be recognized alongside some of the brightest and smartest minds in Hollywood — I'm still floating a bit off the ground, to be honest."
